What is The Agency?
The Agency is an experiential learning facility operating within the McKeil School of Business at Mohawk College. Students from a variety of programs including Advertising, Public Relations – Corporate Communications, Marketing, Graphics, Broadcast Media, Journalism and Photography collaborate in developing real world marketing and communications solutions for selected businesses in the greater Hamilton area.
All projects with our client/partners are integrated into the curriculum and students are marked on what they do. They work under close faculty supervision as they develop effective marketing communications solutions relevant to meeting clear client objectives. Take a virtual tour of the Agency.
Watch for our spring 2024 call for the fall/winter 2024-25 academic year.

Graeme Davis, Bruha
“Being a for-profit start-up company with access to very limited resources, the opportunity to work with the Agency program continues to be a grateful experience. The program itself is exemplary in educating the next generation of employees and leaders to the real obstacles companies face in today’s world."
Donna de Jong, The John Howard Society
“Working with the Agency was a pleasure. We consistently found our teams of students to be creative, insightful and respectful of deadlines. They brought forward fresh ideas and strategies that we would not have considered without their support and guidance.”
