St. Joseph to print Canadian Geographic
TORONTO—Canadian Geographic magazine has agreed to let St. Joseph Communications handle its printing, as well as circulation, marketing and production, a move that will help Canadian Geographic focus on content creation on multiple platforms, said its publisher.

André Préfontaine, executive director of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and president and publisher of Canadian Geographic Enterprises, said the five-year agreement with St. Joseph is "a wonderful opportunity for us to reorganize our operation more along content creation ... I think we're just like any other publisher looking at digital media and wondering how do we take the turn.

"Our long-term view of this is we have to evolve into content creators that can publish on multiple platforms. This move will accelerate this process."

Printing of Canadian Geographic was previously handled by Dollco in Ottawa, noted the publisher. Beginning with the November issue of Canadian Geographic Travel, St. Joseph Print will oversee printing, bindery and distribution of Canadian Geographic, Canadian Geographic Travel, Géographica, and various Canadian Geographic special interest publications, according to St. Joseph.

The deal with Canadian Geographic follows another win: St. Joseph recently acquired the contract to publish and print Glow magazine for Shoppers Drug Mart.
