The world is changing, women are changing and we’re changing, too.
Whether it’s the beauty of our landscape (and its beauty is world-renowned) or the exceptional people who reside here, Canada is the only place I’ll ever want to live.
That’s why taking the helm of Canadian Living is a dream come true. To be able to work on an iconic Canadian brand (did you know that we’re almost 42 years old?) that celebrates this incredible country is an honour.
But the world is changing, women are changing and Canadian Living is changing, too. Our mandate is to help you, our wonderful reader, make each day your best. Our new tagline is “Real life made simple”—a sentiment that’s carried through our pages from cover to cover.
Over the past few months, we’ve reached out to many of you to learn what you want to see more of in this magazine. The resounding answer was “More recipes!” Fifty percent of you told us that you try a Canadian Living recipe every single month! (Shout-out to the reader who makes a weekly tradition of it with her mom.) Imagine: In four decades, the Canadian Living Test Kitchen has developed more than 25,000 Tested-till-perfect recipes (there are more than 11,000 on canadianliving.com) and, in addition, has produced 71 cookbooks and 42 special issues! And we have so much more coming your way.
We’re also keen to hear what you think about our effortless solutions for everyday life. Our new Life & Community section will deliver relationship, career and financial advice as well as inspiring stories celebrating Canadian women we admire. The Health & Fitness coverage will empower you with easy exercises, nutritious recipes to nourish your body and pro tips to make healthier decisions. With expert guidance on what to wear, how to get glowing skin and the best products Canada has to offer, our Fashion & Beauty coverage will show you how to look stylish without breaking the bank, and our Home & Garden team will tell you how to beautify your home, inside and out, with easy DIYS and organizing solutions. All in all, we want to help you achieve optimal well-being and be the best you!
I’m so excited to present the new Canadian Living to you. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
