Transcontinental Inc.

Transcontinental Inc., operating as TC Transcontinental, is a Montreal-based packaging, commercial printing and specialty media company.

The company was established in 1976 as a direct marketing company, and later expanded into newspaper printing, as well as newspaper and magazine publishing outright.

In the mid-2010’s, Transcontinental began to exit the mass media industry by divesting its consumer-oriented publications, local newspapers, and its financial industry publications. In turn, the company began to make a number of acquisitions in the packaging sector to diversify beyond its existing printing business.

Transcontinental is publicly-traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange, and has over 9,000 employees—the majority of which are based in Canada, the United States and Latin America.
