Digital Media Strategist

Ethnicity Matters is Canada’s leading authority in marketing and communications to a multicultural world. Our mission is to help shape and develop culturally-driven strategies and ideas for visionary brands that want to win a disproportionate share of the consumer market.

We’re not a traditional multicultural marketing agency, we’re a business solutions company. We create business ideas that drive sales, impact culture and engage multicultural consumers. Our clients get strategically driven marketing solutions specific to their business goals, rather than advertising campaigns. We address our clients’ problems as business issues.

We are thought leaders asked to deliver seminars on multicultural trends, demographics and challenges to organizations across Canada and the US and work with clients in a wide range of categories including CIBC, TELUS, Kruger Products, Canada Dry, Hotstar, Dyson and Food Basics.

We are: Strategically focused. Creatively inspired. Results driven.
