For Immediate Release

Montreal, QC–June 20th, 2023– To grow its support of the Canadian manufacturing, industrial and consulting sectors, Nimonik announced the acquisition of the publications of Templegate Information Services Inc (Templegate)., a 35-year old regulatory compliance information company based in Toronto, ON. Lawrence Earl and Judy Earl, owners of Templegate, will stay on with Nimonik for a period of one year to transition the customers and regulatory data to the platform before they retire.

The acquisition comes at a pivotal time for industry and businesses striving to improve their compliance programs, regulatory monitoring and ESG reporting. Nimonik’s software solutions allow organizations to meet all those requirements more effectively.

The team at Nimonik is excited to offer its modern platform to over 200 Templegate customers and the broader market in Ontario and Canada. Nimonik covers over 550,000 regulations worldwide in over 600 jurisdictions. Templegate customers will gain access to regulatory data across Canada, the United States and internationally. 

The acquisition of Templegate is the fourth by Nimonik, founded in 2008, and establishes the company as the premier provider of Canadian compliance data for industry. With the creation of an office in Toronto, Nimonik will be able to better service its customers across Canada and the United States. 

Lawrence Earl explains, “For many years now, our subscribers have requested that we enhance our existing service by introducing digital tools that would permit the customization necessary to efficiently meet the compliance needs of individual customers. It gives us great pleasure, therefore, to jointly announce this new stage in the process of continual improvement.. We have been very careful to choose an appropriate partner to continue our legacy of commitment to the field. With Nimonik, we are confident that the new alignment will result in the very best combination of sensitively-curated content, technical expertise and client-oriented focus.”
