Bayard Canada is a Canadian company, which belongs to the religious community of les Pères Augustins de l’Assomption located in Quebec City. Bayard is a communications company — publishing books, magazines, and websites. Bayard targets three central, but separate, markets, youths up to 18 years old, seniors, and Christians — particularly Catholics.
Bayard Canada’s headquarters are in Montreal. The Montreal office employs more than 60 staff that work on the editorial, production, design, marketing, customer service, and distribution of the Bayard brands — including Bayard Jeunesse Canada, Bayard Canada Books, Novalis, and BND Distribution.
The Toronto office employs approximately 35 staff. Many work on the editorial, design, marketing, and production of Chirp, chickaDEE and OWL magazines, as well as Owlkids Books, which includes the recently acquired Maple Tree Press imprint. The others work on Novalis English-language religious books, resources, and periodicals.
