The brainchild of award-winning Toronto Star photographer Andrew Stawicki in collaboration with Toronto Star photo editor Peter Robertson, along with their wives Margaret Stawicki and Michelle Robertson launched the first of their publications, Our Kids Go To Camp in 1997. The idea arose because as parents, they were looking to provide the best opportunities for their children and did not know where to start. While the initial target of their marketing expertise was summer camps, another breakthrough came soon after, with the addition of private schools. Two years after that, retirement homes were added to the mix.
The company grew as more and more families were looking for help to guide them through important decisions they were facing. Working closely with both readers and industry experts, a total of three consumer magazines and two business journals were developed. Industry-leading websites and mobile apps are now also a critical part of the mix.
