Talent Canada is celebrating one year as a national workplace publication.

Officially launched Dec. 12, 2019, the website and quarterly magazine is Canada’s source for news and information pertinent to C-suite leaders and human resources professionals.

In its first year, Talent Canada’s website recorded more than 130,000 page views, with the lion’s share of news coverage dedicated to the workplace’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“When we launched Talent Canada, we knew there was an appetite for trusted, independent and reliable information on the best people practices,” said Todd Humber, group publisher.


“But watching the traffic build and the engagement grow exponentially throughout the year was incredible to watch.”

Workplace news coverage

Held in May, the Back to Work Virtual Summit saw close to 500 senior business leaders and HR professionals take part in an early virtual event that provided advice and best practices on reopening safely following the initial COVID-19 lockdown.

Since then, Talent Canada has embarked on a Future of Work series, showcasing thought leadership and forecasting workplace issues through virtual events.

“It has been a fun ride, and we’re just getting started on this journey,” said Humber. “Thanks to our readers, partners and sponsors for believing in the vision.”

“We’re very proud of the product and partnerships we have built, and we have even bigger plans as we head into year two. We have a packed agenda that includes events, webinars, podcasts, roundtables, in-depth features and so much more.”

Continuing to innovate

Originally launched by Humber, the magazine’s editorial duties were transferred to Marcel Vander Wier in May 2019. Wendy Serrao serves as the brand’s account manager.

An audio podcast known as Talent Show was also launched in May, and includes a handful of episodes pertinent to workplace recruitment, safety and culture.

With one year now officially complete, the team at Talent Canada is grateful to our readers and sponsors who made this possible.
