SociallyInfused is a digital marketing agency with a core competency in search engine optimization and social media management. As a national leader in the space, we work with clients across Canada, the US, and abroad. We welcome all Canadian students to apply.

Melissa Weekes was a dear friend of our founder & CEO, Vincent Bucciachio. She always exhibited a kind spirit and willingness to help and support her friends—her strength as an independent and successful businesswoman was the inspiration for this program.
