About bicom — Marketing & Communications — Toronto + Montreal

We combine big agency experience with a boutique’s agile attitude.

In a world of commoditized services, bicom takes a high-touch, relationship-based approach to connecting leading brands with target audiences through media and influencer engagement, digital content and engaging experiences.

The bicom Story

Marie-Noelle Hamelin and Vicky Boudreau founded bicom in 2006, innovating how to get brands noticed – for the right reasons and by the right people. Their motto? Make it happen, no matter what.

The principles of their partnership formed the values that guide bicom’s business today: attracting top talent and inspiring their hustle to deliver meaningful results. Together, they’re moving the company towards their vision of creating a strong network of locally-led creative communities that redefine the power of influence. They’re the best of friends, sharing an office and family vacations, and continue to rise to every challenge that comes their way.

In 2015, the duo opened the bicom Toronto office; the exponential growth that followed positioned bicom as one of Canada's most prolific agencies.

Awards winning & Associations

Highly active in the business community, bicom is a member of EntreChefs PME, the Alliance des cabinets de relations publiques du Québec, which Vicky was chaired, the Regroupement des Firmes de Services Indépendantes du Québec, and the American group The PR Net, and has also received several awards over the years, including 2022 ‘THE PR NET 100’ LIST, the Work-Life Balance Award from Groupe entreprises en santé, and a nomination for the 75 most influential women-owned businesses in the Québec economy, awarded by Premières en affaires in 2020.
