Toronto-based Quarto Communications has purchased two Transcontinental Media magazine titles, Canadian Home Workshop and Outdoor Canada, Masthead Online reports.
Quarto is publisher of Cottage Life and Explore. Financial details of the sale were not released.
According to Masthead, most of the editorial staff will move to the Quarto offices, but there have been some layoffs as a result of the sale.
Transcon bought the two mags as part of a larger deal with Avid Media in 2004, which was part of a larger strategy to build a men’s group of titles.
