Canada Games Company

Canada Games was a Canadian games manufacturing company, originally based in Brampton, Ontario, before moving to nearby Concord. Its slogan was "The Best in Fun from Canada Games."

It's notable that despite being a far smaller company than its American competition, the Canada Games Company was able to remain a force in the market for many years.

Its products included toys, board games and puzzles, particularly those related to popular movies and television shows.

The company's most popular item was Pogs. With the end of the Pogs fad, Canada Games went out of business in 1997.

Canada Games in its 14-year history produced a large number of items still commonly found on store shelves especially in smaller towns. They were aggressive in getting licensing rights for Canada for certain items and appeared to have taken over other companies as they progressed.
