Dates of existence



Pirate is the largest and most awarded advertising production company in Canada. Founded in Toronto in 1990, Pirate began in radio but has since expanded to television and the internet, has added a New York office, and as of 2012 operates 10 recording studios. The company specializes in voice, music, and sound design, and also employs music composers, script and concept writers, and a large team of producers and casting directors. Pirate is highly regarded in the industry for its innovation—it was one of the first studios to offer both writing and production services, one of the first to build its own studios, and has developed a rights-cleared music search engine for advertisers. Pirate’s early success attracted an ever-increasing client base from many different sectors of society including airlines, the automotive industry, charitable organizations, cultural and educational institutions, financial institutions, the food and beverage industry, governments and government agencies, media and telecommunication companies, retail stores, unions and more.
