Time goes by fast

Hilroy has been helping Canadians put pen to paper for 100 years now. Great things get started in a Hilroy every day. Smart things, creative things, never-been-done-before things. All you need to start something great is a pen, some paper, and that big, beautiful brain of yours.

In honour of Hilroy’s 100th anniversary, we invite you to start something with Hilroy. If we’ve learned anything over the last century, it’s that time goes by fast. So if there’s something in your mind or heart that you really want to get started, you should do it, “write” now.


This summer, Hilroy partnered with @Start2Finish’s backpack program, donating a notebook for every scribble submitted. Check out our great entries on our Instagram page. Thank you to all who participated!

About Hilroy®

On July 4, 1918, Hilroy commenced operations in Toronto, Ontario. Disregarding the pessimism of skeptical business associates, Roy Corson Hill borrowed $432 on a life insurance policy and added it to $1,500 his parents obtained by mortgaging their home. With this capital, he formed his own stationery company: Canadian Pad and Paper Co. Limited. The company grew quickly, and by 1958 it was officially known as Hilroy Envelopes and Stationery Ltd.i
