Mark Reid, editor of Canada's History, accepted the award, noting, "We are honoured to be chosen from among an exceptional group of publishers. It's especially rewarding when you are recognized for the whole team that builds your magazine. We're all so passionate about telling stories that resonate about Canadian history, and this kind of recognition helps us to feel we are making these stories relevant for today's readers."
