Magazines Canada cancels MagNet
Magazines Canada has announced it is restructuring the association in order to reduce expenses and bring them in line with revenues. The new course will go into effect on April 1.


Among the changes is the decision to discontinue the MagNet conference, which was held virtually in 2020. The association also announced it will find greater efficiencies and will deliver services in a more streamlined manner.


Some programs will remain untouched. One is government relations and advocacy to preserve government financial support for the industry at the federal and provincial level. This past year, according to a release, Magazines Canada leveraged $60 million in additional federal funding to help the industry withstand COVID 19, bringing the total amount of federal support $117 million.


Magazines Canada will also maintain professional development resources, such as webinars, podcasts, Hotsheets, and travelling consultants, to help members adapt to changes in the media landscape.
