History

 

The Canada Crayon Company started in 1926 in Peterborough, Ontario and moved to Lindsay, Ontario, in 1933.  It was early in 1934 that it produced Canada's first Crayola crayons and in 1958 it became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Binney and Smith Inc. (now Crayola LLC.) and is the only current manufacturer of crayons in Canada.  Their main product line, Peacock, was used throughout their existence as an independent crayon company but was dropped in the 1960s to focus exclusively on Crayola.  They weren't the first crayon company to use the Peacock name though.  Standard Crayon Co. produced a Peacock crayon box nearly 20 years earlier in the early 1900s.
