LIKE MOST BIRTHDAY GIRLS, WE DROPPED A HINT TO OUR FRIENDS (A.K.A. YOU, THE READERS!) THAT WE HAD AN IMPORTANT DATE COMING UP. HERE ARE SOME OF YOUR LOVELY (AND TRULY APPRECIATED) WELL WISHES ON OUR 15TH ANNIVERSARY.
Thank you so much for being such a great friend! I know I can always rely on you to be there when I need an ego boost, a little pick-me-up or some new inspiration. I’ve been subscribing since I was 15, and you have stuck by me for the most spontaneous adventures, the worst hangovers and some long road trips. In the way only a true friend can, you offer such sweet advice on how to be my best self, inside and out, and you have the most amazing beauty and fashion tips (which you are always so willing to share). Cheers to you on your birthday, ELLE Canada! To your beauty and prosperity and to a very long-lasting friendship that I know will continue for many years to come! xox Love,
HAILEY BARRY, VICTORIA Thank you for your inspiration and your beautiful images. Thank you for your wise words and lust-worthy indulgences. Thank you for the laughter and for understanding who we are. Thank you for all that you do. DEBRA GOLDBLATTSADOWSKI, TORONTO Wow, 15 years and look what you have become! You feature the very best of Canadian fashion and beauty, and you make your readers proud of our homegrown talent. Canada rocks, and so does ELLE Canada! Happy Birthday!
MONIQUE AUERBACH, TORONTO Congratulations on 15 fabulous years. I truly enjoy your magazine. JOAN SAHAIDAK, TORONTO Let me start by saying you are absolutely the best! In the past, I have been a subscriber to a multitude of magazines, and not one of them compares to your diversity of content, great local and international fashion coverage and refreshing style of writing on interesting topics.

You are part of my weekend routine, and I always take you with me when I travel. I think you’ve got yourself a subscriber for life!
