About The Royal Canadian Geographical Society

“An exciting moment in our history”

It's the beginning of a new era for Canadian Geographic. For the past 12 years, Canadian Geographic has been jointly owned by The Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS) and Key Publishers of Toronto. In July, the Society bought Key's interest, becoming sole owner of the magazine and websites.

“This is an exciting moment in our history,” says Gisèle Jacob, president of the RCGS. “I am confident that Canadian Geographic will continue to build on its many strengths.”

Helping the magazine build on those strengths is André Préfontaine, the new president of Canadian Geographic Enterprises and publisher of CG. Préfontaine is the former president of Transcontinental Media, the fourth largest publishing company in Canada.

Canadian Geographic and its new-media extensions play a unique role in fostering a greater understanding of the country,” says Préfontaine. “I look forward to working with the team that has made it one of the most widely read publications in Canada.”

Préfontaine takes over from John Thomson, who has joined the team at Key.
