Hub International Ltd. is acquiring Mississauga, Ont.-based employee benefits consulting firm GMS Insurance Inc.

Last year, the global insurance brokerage acquired GMS’s Kitchener, Ont. operations. The company said owning both entities would allow it to enhance its services to southwestern Ontario and greater Toronto area clients.
