Contribute To Our Canada And Get A FREE 1-Year Gift Subscription Upon Publication!

Our Canada is your magazine, written by and for Canadians just like you. Tell us about your hometown, adventures, handicrafts, collections, and show off those amazing snapshots you took on your vacations at home and abroad!


Our Canada is your magazine, written by and for Canadians just like you. We want your stories, whether they’re about your grandma’s famous apple pie or the oopsie-daisy adventure you and your friend took on one fateful winter afternoon.

If we do share your stories and photos with the rest of Canada, you will receive a FREE copy of the issue in which your story appears and a FREE one-year gift subscription to the magazine. You can keep it or offer it to someone else as a gift and if you’re already a subscriber, we’ll just add another year to your existing subscription. Plus, your story or photos will automatically appear as part of the digital issue of the magazine.


We want to hear about your Hometown and all its quirks and about that Favourite Vacation at home or abroad. Do you have a rickety old car story for our Wheels section? Or are you a Collector of unusual things now cluttering your shelves? Maybe you or someone you know is particularly Crafty or has a talent to be Showcased?

We love to get stories about The Way it Was and Funny tales of mishaps and misadventures. Finally, because Canada is such a fantastic mosaic, we want to hear from different Cultural viewpoints and about those exciting and/or difficult journeys of Coming to Canada.

If you have an idea you don't see here, send it along! We can't wait to read about it and perhaps share it with the rest of Canada.
