Integro (Canada) Ltd. announced its acquisition of Winnipeg-based Multimedia Risk Inc., an insurance brokerage, which specializes in serving the national and international film and television production industry from offices in Canada and the United States.

Financial considerations were not disclosed.

Multimedia Risk was established in 1998, and has brokered coverage for hundreds of film productions, including “The Expendables,” “The Mechanic,” “Midnight’s Children” and “Getaway” as well as television productions, ranging from “Heartland” and “Cracked” to “Corner Gas,” “Little Mosque on the Prairie,” “Cashing In” and “Todd and the Book of Pure Evil.”

Integro Canada President Mark Rankin commented: “Multimedia Risk adds to our geographic presence and enhances our expertise in entertainment. With Integro offices in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, Multimedia gives us a physical presence in a fourth Canadian city and province, Winnipeg, Manitoba, and its diversified, flourishing economy. We are excited to welcome Claude Forest and his accomplished team, and to leverage their success across the Integro organization.”

Forest, who founded and leads Multimedia Risk, said: “We are proud of what we’ve accomplished over the past 15 years and excited at the prospect of helping Integro assume a leadership role on the international entertainment risk management stage.”
