Canadian Home Workshop was a Canadian magazine that had been published since 1977.[1][2] Its last publication was the Winter 2014 issue.[1] The magazine featured do-it-yourself and woodworking content. The headquarters was in Toronto.[3] Its previous headquarters was in Markham, Ontario.[2]

Published six issues a year,[1] it featured articles on project ideas, tool profiles, technique and design ideas, practical renovation and home maintenance information, and shop tips. The magazine was formerly published on a monthly basis.[2]

The magazine was owned by Avid Media until 2004 when Transcontinental acquired the title.[1] Then the magazine was sold in September 2009 (along with sister title Outdoor Canada magazine) to Cottage Life Media Inc.[1]

Canadian Home Workshop had been Canada's authority on home improvement and woodworking for the last 33 years. The magazine provided its readers with a mix of classic and contemporary woodworking projects, including information for beginners that would develop their skills and more advanced techniques to challenge and inspire.
