Snowbirds aims at retirees flocking to Florida
Snowbirds du Quebec, a new glossy from publisher Pierre Leduc and editor-in-chief Marc Beauchamp, targets Quebecers above the age of 49 that are retired or plan to retire in Florida.

The French-language independent magazine offers advice in the realm of real estate, including property law and taxes, and travel. "In addition to practical stories, the magazine will also be reporting on current events and sharing the experiences of snowbirds," adds Beauchamp in a release. The term "snowbirds" refers to people who dodge winter by migrating to warmer locales.
