The Best TV Advertising Companies in Canada

Looking for a top TV advertising agency in Canada?

TV ads are an effective way to build brand awareness if you have the marketing budget to invest in television advertising. Commercials on TV typically last about 30-60 seconds, and the cost of placing a TV ad depends on when it runs, on what channels, and how long the ad lasts. Advertisements that play more frequently and target broader audiences tend to cost more.

Television advertising also includes commercials on streaming services and video platforms like Hulu or YouTube. An ad on Hulu may cost more than an ad on YouTube due to the size and style of content on Hulu. A TV advertising agency will help you determine which platforms and channels are best based on your target audience, goals, and budget.

To assist you in your search for a partner, we’ve compiled this list of the top TV advertising companies in Canada. Browse descriptions, feedback, and awards to find which can best suit your company’s needs.
