Bespoke service backed by the reach and resources of Canada’s largest advisory firm

National Capital Markets provides investor relations, transaction and corporate communications, as well as crisis and special situations support. Our team of trusted advisors have worked in-house at public companies and on the trading floor, brought newly public companies to market, and advised on high profile joint ventures and multi-billion dollar acquisitions. We do the nitty-gritty day-to-day and the game-changing deals that help seal a company’s reputation.

Our deep bench strength is backed by the full-service capabilities of Canada’s largest independent public relations firm. National, founded in 1976, has a long track record of providing creative, marketing, branding, public affairs and public relations support and advisory services to many of Canada’s leading companies. National is part of AVENIR GLOBAL, a Montreal-based holding company with operations in the U.S. and Europe and ranked among the top 25 independent communications advisories globally.

Very simply, there is no other firm in Canada with the capital markets and investor relations expertise, national and international reach, and scope of services to seamlessly meet client needs.


National Capital Markets grew from National’s acquisition of Equicom, Canada’s largest investor relations firm, from the TMX Group Inc., in 2015. Founded in 1996, Equicom boasted a client roster that included a cross-section of large and small businesses listed in Canada and around the world, serviced through offices in Toronto, Calgary and Montreal. Equicom was acquired by the TMX Group in 2007 to provide its listed issuers with a national presence, relationships, professional IR support, and knowledge of the Canadian capital markets.
