Hello! Canada

Hello! Canada is a Canadian entertainment magazine.[1] Launched in 2006 by Rogers Media, the magazine was licensed as a local edition of the Spanish ¡Hola! brand of entertainment magazines. Prior to its launch, the British edition Hello! was directly distributed in Canada; although this was discontinued when the Canadian edition was launched, the Canadian edition continued to run selected content from the British version.[2] The first issue featured a cover story on Margaret Trudeau, Justin Trudeau and Alexandre Trudeau.[3]

Its announcement influenced Torstar to offer a promotion for its competing magazine Weekly Scoop, temporarily dropping that magazine's cover price to just 25 cents the week after Hello! Canada's launch was announced.[4]

On March 20, 2019, Rogers announced a deal to sell the magazine to St. Joseph Communications.[5]
