Telemedia was a Canadian media company, which had holdings in radio, television and magazine publishing.

The company was launched in 1968 by Philippe de Gaspé Beaubien.

Telemedia's magazine assets, including Canadian Living, Harrowsmith and the Canadian editions of TV Guide and ELLE, were sold to Transcontinental Media in 2000.
