Association des agences de communication créative
A2C is proud to partake in the creation of EFFIE CANADA–which results from the merger of the CASSIES awards and EFFIE WORLDWIDE’s North-American program.


This awards contest spotlights marketing ideas that work and encourages dialogue on drivers of marketing effectiveness.


Merger of the CASSIES and the EFFIE awards

The CASSIES awards – which have honored marketing ROI in Canada since 1993 – have recently joined the global Effie awards network to become EFFIE CANADA. This transformation was initiated by the Institute of Communication Agencies (ICA) in order to better put Canadian marketing effectiveness on the global stage. A2C will help ICA promote Québec agencies’ participation and scope.
