The Omnicom-owned interactive agency is opening an office in Toronto early next year.

Omnicom-owned agency Red Urban is expanding into Canada and bringing with it its small, nimble team and open source agency model.

The UK-HQ’d firm, which has five offices across Europe and the US, is launching in Toronto early next year. Currently, the firm is pursuing branding and business solutions partners in the country.

‘Soon, Red Urban will provide top Canadian brand marketers with the creative business solutions they’ve been seeking, but aren’t finding in other agencies,’ says Mike Jefferies, managing director, Red Urban, London, in a release. ‘The current market conditions have forced a lot of companies to re-evaluate their positions, but Red Urban has decided to look at these times as an opportunity for growth.’

‘We tell our clients that this is the time to invest, so we should too,’ adds Jefferies. ‘We believe Canada is the place to do it; there’s great potential in the Canadian market.’

Red Urban clients include Guinness, Microsoft, Red Bull and AT&T.
