A Celebration of Readers
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.
