Biographical / Historical

Time Canada Ltd. is the subsidiary of Time Inc. that published the Canadian edition of  Time. According to prepared answers in a Davey Committee folder in the Managing Director General Files, Time International of Canada Ltd. was incorporated in Canada in 1952 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Time Inc. colloquially known as  Time Canada. A letter to law firm Duquet MacKay, et al. in 1970 expresses the desire to change the legal name to TIME Canada Ltd. While the staff of  Time Canada appear under several areas of the department head lists including Time Life International (TLI), Corporate International, and  Time magazine, it looks as though it remained a subsidiary. A search of the Canadian government Federal Corporation Information website showed the subsidiary still active as of 2019 although the name was changed to TI Canada Ltd. in 2018.
