BMG Music Canada Inc. / Musique BMG Du Canada Inc. (Successor to, 1929-86, RCA Victor Co, Ltd, RCA Inc, RCA Limited/Limitée). Record company which began as the Victor Talking Machine Co in Camden, NJ, in 1901. Its records were pressed and distributed in Canada by the Berliner Gramophone Co of Montreal. In 1924 Victor purchased Berliner and formed the Victor Talking Machine Co of Canada. Edgar Berliner remained president until 1930. Victor in turn was purchased by the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) in 1929 and RCA Victor was created. (Artists recorded by Victor before 1929 are discussed in the Berliner entry.)

RCA Victor was one of two record companies in Canada to survive the Depression. RCA retained the North American rights to the Berliner mascot, 'Nipper,' associated with the HMV (His Master's Voice) series and maintained him until the early 1970s. At that time the Victor name also was dropped in view of RCA's increased activity outside the recording industry. The Canadian company relocated its head office to Toronto in 1972 (and in 1991 had branch offices in seven other locations). The parent company was sold in the early 1980s to General Electric which in turn sold RCA's music holdings in 1986 to Bertelsmann AG of Gueterlsh, West Germany. The name BMG Music Canada Inc. (for Bertelsmann Music Group) was in commercial use by 1987. BMG Musique Que was established in 1990 to service the French-speaking market.
