READER’S DI­GEST CANADA IS TURN­ING That means for close to seven decades—or nearly half as long as our coun­try has ex­isted—this mag­a­zine has been telling sto­ries about Cana­di­ans, by Cana­di­ans, for Cana­di­ans. We couldn’t be more proud of this achieve­ment.

Many as­pects of RD have changed over the years, of­ten re­flect­ing the shifts we see in the world around us. But in as­sem­bling this spe­cial col­lec­tor’s is­sue, the edi­to­rial team was struck by the qual­i­ties that have re­mained con­stant. As we leafed through back is­sues to sin­gle out choice pieces to mark our an­niver­sary, we were re­minded of the value of heart­felt sto­ry­telling, crit­i­cal health ad­vice, in-depth re­port­ing and up­lift­ing pro­files. Reader’s Di­gest sto­ries are care­fully cho­sen to in­form, en­ter­tain and in­spire. We hope you en­joy this se­lec­tion, which in­cludes close to 20 ex­tra pages of beloved clas­sics from the RD Vault.

An­other spe­cial fea­ture of this is­sue is “The His­tory of Us” (page 66)—a time­line of Reader’s Di­gest high­lights along­side anec­dotes from our read­ers about how the mag­a­zine has trans­formed their lives. Th­ese per­sonal re­flec­tions re­veal what is most mag­i­cal about our pub­li­ca­tion: how it af­fects you. From ev­ery­one at RD, I thank you for cel­e­brat­ing this an­niver­sary with us and I look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to re­ceive your valu­able feed­back.
