Former staff at Groupe TVA publications took to social media last week to share the news of layoffs at three major lifestyle brands.
Hey Twitter.. long time no talk! So all of us dope ladies at Canadian Living & Style at Home (plus a bunch of awesome ppls from Elle Canada)have been laid off effective immediately due to the shitty state of the media industry right now…

Editorial functions for Style at Home and Canadian Living are being moved to Montreal, TVA’s vice-president of communications told J-Source, while Elle Canada will remain in its Toronto office.

Personal news: I am headed up University Ave. to The Globe's Queen's Park bureau. Excited for the new challenge and to work with the talented @l_stone, but sad to leave the Clamshell, a place brimming with good stories and fascinating characters where important stuff gets done.
