Celebrating Canada 150+

PressReader delivers Canada’s historic issues to readers across the country

This Canada Day, Canadians can read historic issues of newspapers and magazines from across the country. Readers from Victoria to St. John’s can explore a catalog of vintage issues in the new Canada 150+ category on PressReader.com and the PressReader app starting today.

For the first time ever, The Globe and Mail’s July 1st, 1967 issue, which celebrated Canada’s centennial birthday, will be available digitally for all Canadians.

In addition, Toronto Star, Inuit Art Quarterly, The Walrus, Toronto Life, and many other publishers have searched their archives and made important issues available on PressReader. The historic stories range from a celebration of Celine Dion to the anniversary of the Titanic’s tragic sinking to the founding of Nunavut.

“We love being a Canadian company,” said Alex Kroogman, CEO at PressReader. “We’re building something that reflects the energy, diversity, and history of Canada and its people.”

With over 6,000 newspaper and magazine titles from over 120 countries available on the platform, PressReader can deliver a wide breadth of opinions and perspectives unlike any other similar platform.

Starting on June 26th and ending on July 4th, every Canadian can also get unlimited access to PressReader’s entire library of top-quality newspapers and magazines for 150 hours by registering for a free account.
