CaptionMax completes acquisition of National Captioning Canada

On March 1, 2021, CaptionMax acquired Calgary, Alberta-based National Captioning Canada (NCC) on March 1, 2021. NCC will continue to operate with its market-leading captioning brand serving major Canadian broadcasters, government, profit and not-for-profit organizations.

Together, the companies have already begun expanding service offerings in Canada in all areas of media accessibility and are in the process of hiring additional staff to support this expansion. The acquisition also provides for additional operational capacity and redundancies across geographies. All staff across both organizations will remain as part of the acquisition.

The BLG team representing CaptionMax included Stefan Timms, Carlos Cerqueira and Stephen Nguyen (Corporate); Brian Portas and Marco Castelli (Labour & Employment); Steve Suarez, Bobby Solhi  and Shannon James (Tax); Mark Ricketts (Real Estate); Jennifer Ponton (IP); Colin Yeo and Sameena Sarangi (Financial Services).
