sparks fly

Canadian Living publisher Jacqueline Howe recently shared some great news with me: The results of a BrandSpark International consumer-voted survey has found that Canadian Living is the most trusted magazine brand among Canadian shoppers. What a delight for our team to receive this acclaim from our beloved readers! Besides taste-testing recipes from the Test Kitchen, one of the best parts of our jobs is dreaming up and executing the editorial content we can only hope will be compelling for you to read at home.

The picture-perfect turquoise water and, of course, the incredibly friendly and hospitable people at the heart of every interaction. Our recommendation is to really lean in to all nature has to offer there. From lighthouses to natural pools to forts to the city, there is so much to explore—and given that you can get to most places from wherever you are on the…
