A publishing group that has been nourishing the body and the mind since 1992.

In 1992, François Doucet and Nancy Coulombe founded Éditions AdA Inc. At the time of its creation, the company’s legal name was L’Art de s’Apprivoiser (The Art of Knowing the Self); later, in 1996, the company incorporated under the name Les Éditions l’Art de s’Apprivoiser Inc. In light of the company’s rapid development, along with its opening to international markets, they opted in 1998 for the name Éditions AdA Inc.
