The wait is over for fashion-loving Canadian brides-to-be
Hudson's Bay is launching the Canadian flagship of renowned bridal retailer, Kleinfeld Bridal, in its Toronto Queen Street location. For the first time ever, blushing brides do not have to cross the border to "Say Yes" to the Kleinfeld experience. With exclusive rights to the brand in Canada, Hudson's Bay will open a 20,000-sqft Kleinfeld flagship in early 2014. Brides will now have access to expert bridal consultants and the same scope and breadth of designer gowns available at the New York Store.
Hudson's Bay is already number one in Canadian bridal registry, and the new Toronto Kleinfeld Bridal flagship adds to this position, offering Canadian brides an unmatched addition to its current line of gifts, home and lifestyle products - perfect for any bride-to-be.
"This is a thrilling day for our team at Kleinfeld," says Ronald Rothstein, Co-Owner of Kleinfeld Bridal. "We are the largest luxury bridal retailer in the world and look forward to bringing the finest selection of exclusive designer wedding gowns to Hudson's Bay."

Good-food advocate and chef to help guide Ryerson’s Food Services reinvention
For the next three months, renowned good-food advocate and chef Joshna Maharaj will be sharing her sage advice with the team that’s tasked with reinventing Food Services at Ryerson University.
“At Ryerson our new approach to food needs to be innovative, collaborative and holistic,” says Julia Hanigsberg, vice-president, administration and finance. “I’ve heard from students, faculty and staff that they want food that’s wholesome, affordable, sustainable, delicious and diverse. That’s a tall order, and it’s the reason I am delighted to welcome Joshna as our dedicated food champion to help guide us on this exciting journey.”
Over the last several years, Toronto-based Maharaj has made a name for herself as one of the leading experts and proponents of high-quality food, especially in large institutional settings.
“Ryerson is well poised to be a visionary leader in both enhancing university life and building a more sustainable food system,” says Maharaj. “We need to start thinking about food as the fuel that animates a university community. I believe that good food is the most effective, accessible and joyful way to engage that community.”
Maharaj’s main tasks at Ryerson will be advising on the development of the request for proposals for a new Food Services management operator, developing new performance indicators for Food Services (focusing on sustainability, variety and competitive pricing) and engaging with students, faculty and staff on food strategy.
