Advertising in Our Times

When you advertise in Our Times, the labour movement in Canada takes notice. Published six times a year, we’re the only independent magazine in the country serving this community.

Who reads Our Times?

With a press run of over 3,000 copies, Our Times magazine is read by over 8,000 trade unionists, community activists and union supporters across the country. Our readers work in both the public and private sector. They are union staffers, elected leaders and rank and file workers. They are garment workers, teachers, nurses, auto workers, government workers, artists, postal workers, steelworkers, researchers, social workers, librarians and more. And these active participants in labour and social change movements do more than just read Our Times - they also write many of the articles.

Low-cost Alternative

You don’t have to break the bank to get your message out to Our Times magazine’s audience. For example, a quarter-page ad just costs $270. Printing and mailing 3,000 copies of a notice on your own could easily cost thousands of dollars — an expensive alternative. If you’ve already produced a pamphlet or a brochure, we can insert it in the magazine. Call and ask about all your options. We’re sure you’ll find something that fits your budget.

Advertising is Easy

Contact us by phone, fax, e-mail or mail to discuss your advertising needs and to book your ad placement. If your ad is ready, you can send it on disk or by e-mail. If you want us to design an ad for you, tell us what you want to say and our art department will produce a high-quality ad according to your instructions. You will be provided with a proof before it’s printed. It’s that easy.

Extra Distribution

Our Times often features articles that coincide with special events such as Labour Day, International Women’s Day and labour conventions. You can benefit from the extra profile the magazine receives at these events by coordinating your advertising efforts with our publishing schedule.
