Launched in 2000, The Magazine is Canada's leading youth lifestyle magazine, covering music, movies, television, fashion, social issues, the environment, health topics and just about anything that affects the lives of 8-14 year olds. The Magazine also spotlights artwork, creative writing and points of view from its readers, as well as editorial contributions from young writers across Canada. Parents, educators and community leaders have praised The Magazine for promoting literacy, media awareness and positive lifestyles, while remaining true to a non-condescending editorial voice. Content is determined by bi-monthly surveys completed by readers and trending topics among North American tweens. In addition to the print edition, themagazine.ca is updated daily with fresh content, exclusive celebrity interviews and interactive features. The Magazine publishes five issues per year (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall and Holly Jolly) and is available in most retail stores across Canada or online at themagazine.ca.
