Publisher’s Notes:  HOME digest International Ltd. was launched in 1995. Since then we have been publishing one of the largest consumer home and lifestyle magazines in Canada. HOME digest magazine reaches over 500,000 homes via Canada Post in the G.T.A. (Greater Toronto Area) and Durham Regions 6 times a year. We branched out into the Kitchener/Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph regions in 2012 and in 2013 added London/Stratford, Hamilton/Niagara On-The LakeRegions to our Publishing schedule.

We have worked hard over the years to provide our readers and our advertisers with a top-quality magazine. As such, we’re proud to tell you that our efforts have been recognized 8 years consecutively with several Awards of Excellence in the international APEX Awards.

Our editorial content is short, newsy, breezy and fresh – articles are tailor-made for every homeowner and family. Our editorial topics range from recipes to renovations, from home décor to household hints.

Each issue carries a nice balance of content. Uniquely, alot of the advertisers in HOME digest are exclusive. We have a maximum of two of each particular retail or service company in the G.T.A. in our magazine. As well, you’ll find links to our advertiser’s websites in our online directory. Visit

Because of this we are able to bring together quality businesses that homeowners in the G.T.A. can rely on for projects in their homes – companies that consumers can have confidence in.

“Where do we go to get new windows installed? Flooring? A renovation for a bathroom or kitchen? Who do I call? Should I talk to my friends and neighbours? Who have they worked with?” We have the answers. Of course, another option is to go to the big yellow book in all our homes and play a little Russian roulette with choosing from the many vendor names listed. Isn’t it better to just open HOME digest for some advice and direction?

We receive hundreds of press releases on hundreds of brand new products coming onto the marketplace and in a few cases we actually receive the products themselves. So between editor “Bill” and myself, we showcase our new product picks through the year and give reviews on a few. We are very confident that if you choose any of our sponsors (advertisers) from our website or our magazine, you will receive the service you deserve.

Now nobody’s perfect. I have made mistakes in my business – I have been tricked or fooled by a company in the past. But today, our ship is pretty clean and I am very proud of all our sponsors. If you choose to use any of our clients and a situation does arise, please e-mail me directly and I will work it through with our client, get to the bottom of the problem and get back to you. Be sure to include your phone number so I can follow up with you.

Please visit our website frequently, as we will be introducing lots of new editorial through the year. As well, if you have an engaging human-interest story or article you would like to submit, please do so.

Enjoy surfing around our website and thank you for your time.
