[International] Groupe Adéquat strengthens its international strategy with the acquisition by TOTEM of the Quebec-based recruitment company Bray, Larouche& Associés

The independent French Groupe Adéquat, which specialises in temporary employment, recruitment and HR consultancy and has a turnover of one billion euros, is continuing to expand its external growth and expertise in northern Europe (Belgium, the Netherlands and Ireland) and in Canada with the acquisition of a network of high-profile companies.


Today, this development is continuing in Quebec thanks to the merger of Totem Recruitment (acquired by the group in 2017) with Bray, Larouche & Associates, a company with 30 years of experience and specialised in recruitment in the administrative sector.

Quebec clients will benefit from a global and personalised recruitment service, built around 7 divisions (accounting, legal, insurance, administration, human resources, construction, purchasing and logistics). Both companies share the same values. All the staff will be retained, as well as the two historical brands.

“We are very proud to support the Totem Recruitment team in strengthening its sectoral expertise. The acquisition of Bray, Larouche et Associés in Quebec marks the resumption of the Adéquat Group’s international development started in 2017. It also confirms our desire to be more widely present in Canada, as a partner to companies according to their needs and by anticipating changes in employment and skills,” says Arnaud Brun, Vice-Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Groupe Adéquat.

Groupe Adéquat intends to continue its international development with a dozen countries and wants to be a reference in each of these markets. As a reminder, last December, the group was awarded a “business award for the best French company in Ireland” by the France-Ireland Chamber of Commerce the best French company in Ireland”.
