Founded in 2002 by Pierre-Paul Boisvert,PUR Communications is a division of PURCOM Entertainment Group, a company that works in show business.
The company’s history began in Trois-Rivières, a small Quebec municipality, in the early 2000s. Upon its inception, the company was responsible for the management of artists and press relations for many local clients. The agency produces, among other things, major regional events and collaborates on major projects with Celine Dionin particular.
In 2007, the company set up its offices in Montreal. From then on, the conquest of the Canadian metropolis began. The agency quickly distinguished itself and collaborated on numerous projects with several big names in show business including Véronic DiCaire. In less than five years, the company has been a leader in press relations and promotion in the cultural and corporate sector in Montreal, as well as throughout Quebec.
PURCOM Entertainment Group continues its expansion in 2012 and establishes its PUR Records division. The new label quickly positioned itself by launching a first album that is part of the selection process of the prestigious GRAMMYawards. The record company has an exclusive physical and digital distribution agreement with Distribution Select,Canada’s largest record distributor.
2017 marks the arrival of radio promotion at PURCOM. The team achieved almost immediate success by propelling excerpts to the top of several radio charts in Quebec and Canada, in addition to reaching the coveted Top 100 Radio BDS and Top 100 Radio Correspondents. The agency also received its first-ever nomination at the ADISQ Gala. Over the years, several major clients have trusted the company as a leading partner, including Oxfam, VStar Entertainment Group (PAW Patrol), Martine St-Clair (over one million albums sold) and Rosa Laricchiuta (TSO).
