Federal Grants

The Canada Periodical Fund provides grants to Canada print magazines, non-daily newspapers and digital periodicals to help them to overcome market challenges. The goal of the grants is to ensure that people have access to diverse Canada editorial content.

There are three categories of grants and each of them have their own eligibility criteria.

Canada Periodical Fund: Aid to Publishers

Canada Periodical Fund Aid to Publishers provides eligible publishers of print magazines and non-daily newspapers with the funding they need to produce and distribute high-quality, Canada editorial content for Canada readers.

Publishers can tap into the Canada Periodical Fund Aid to Publishers to support the content creation process, production, distribution, online activities and business development.

Canada Periodical Fund: Business Innovation

Business Innovation grants provide funding to eligible small and mid-sized printed magazine and digital periodical publishers. These publishing and writing grants encourage innovation to support changing market conditions and contribute to the diversity of content that Canada readers enjoy.

If your company is a startup, there are supports available under this fund to help aspiring and emerging publishers to launch and improve a digital periodical.

Canada Periodical Fund: Collective Initiatives

The Collective Initiatives category funds projects for organizations to increase the overall sustainability of the Canada magazine and non-daily newspaper industries.

Some of the objectives of these initiatives include supporting projects that will test digital opportunities and provide professional development for the industry.
