Canadian department store Eaton's branded Oliver Courier, which of course is itself a Patria by another name. This model was also produced under licence by a few other manufacturers such as Voss and Japy.
A nice typer, but only once you get up to speed and fall into a consistent rhythm; there's something about the Courier's action that goads a typist to go faster.
