In 1913 Frank Patrick O’Connor began a small, Toronto-based candy business selling hand-made chocolates. He chose the name Laura Secord, after the Canadian heroine.

Laura Secord started as a single shop on Yonge Street in Toronto. O’Connor turned the flat above the shop into a kitchen and prepared his own products. Success prompted the company’s expansion across Ontario and Quebec and in the 1930’s an office was opened in Winnipeg and drugstore agencies were appointed as Laura Secord outlets, or service shops.

By 1950, there were 96 shops in Ontario and Quebec, and Laura Secord candy was a well-established family tradition. Starting in the late sixties, Laura Secord underwent a series of ownership changes and is currently owned by Nutriart Inc.

Currently with over 125 company-owned stores across the country, Laura Secord is Canada’s largest chocolatier, selling premium chocolates, ice cream and other types of candies.
