It was Argyle’s third consecutive year as a finalist for the honour, delivered at PRovoke Media’s virtual Sabre Awards last night and featuring participants from around the world. PRovoke Media’s 2020 North America PR Agencies of the Year were the result of an exhaustive research process involving more than 150 submissions and 50 face-to-face meetings with the best PR firms across the US and Canada.
In its analysis of Argyle, PRovoke cited the firm’s longevity, rapid growth, thought leadership, longstanding client relationships, leadership team stability and expertise across multiple business lines, including new specialisms in agribusiness and international trade, social marketing, indigenous communications and ESG.
“This is an exciting first for Argyle in a prestigious international awards program that ranks and selects agencies of the year in every region of the world,” wrote Argyle CEO Daniel Tisch in a note to employees on Thursday night. “While we don’t need awards to be proud of what we do, it is important to know we’re setting a high standard – and wonderful to earn global recognition of the quality of our people, our work and our clients.”
Other recent honours for Argyle include being named Global Mid-Sized Agency of the Year by the International Association of Business Communicators in 2017 and 2018, and as one of the Globe and Mail’s inaugural ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies in 2019.

Argyle’s clients span many sectors, including finance, technology, health care, agri-food, travel, professional services, infrastructure, government, non-profits and many more.
