La Presse and Star Metro Media, a division of Star Media Group that handles advertising sales for the Toronto Star will be absorbing some of the operational staff and technology in Montreal and Toronto in order to continue providing the level of service that advertisers have come to expect when advertising on and Olive Media's remaining partners and products will be transitioned to those partners' in-house sales teams. The change will affect about 70 employees in Toronto and 12 employees in Montreal. Some Toronto employees will be absorbed by Star Metro Media and the entire Montreal staff will be absorbed by La Presse.
