Wins second-ever PR Agency of the Year Gold award from strategy magazine.

TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2015 /CNW/ - MSLGROUP Canada was awarded strategy's second-ever Agency of the Year Gold award at a gala on November 4 at the St. Lawrence Centre in Toronto.

According to strategy, MSLGROUP Canada leveraged its relationships with its Publicis sister agencies, and the booming social influencer space to create a recipe for success.

Fellow Publicis Groupe agency Leo Burnett also took home the top strategy award for Agency of the Year Gold.

"I think PR is being called upon more and more to generate conversation and also to make a real impact on consumer decision-making," said Gayla Brock-Woodland, President, Canada, MSLGROUP. "It's not enough that you're spreading a message and creating awareness, you have to make a really strong connection with consumers, and that's what we've proven we can do."
