COVID-19 Message from the Executive Director

Stay close to The Walrus during self-isolation

Logo for The Walrus

We continue to be guided by the advice of our public health officials and, like each of you, we are making decisions each day with the health of our employees and our community in mind.

During this difficult time, we wanted to reach out to let you know that there are many ways for you to access great content from The Walrus from the comfort of your home.

Online, The Walrus has no paywall, which means all of the independent, fact-based journalism we produce is available for free at You can expect to find four to five new pieces there each week, including “Anatomy of a Pandemic,” our cover story from the May issue of The Walrus magazine.

You can also watch some of the over 850 videos from The Walrus Talks on YouTube. These recorded events feature leading Canadian experts on everything from life on Mars to the health of our oceans.

We are always listening to our audience and have heard your requests for a The Walrus Talks podcast. Within the next week, we will be launching The Conversation Piece to answer this demand. You will be the first to know when it’s ready, and we hope that it sparks conversations—by phone or by video—with your friends and family, wherever they are.

As a nonprofit organization, we are very grateful for the support of our community. Thank you for staying connected with us during these challenging times.

You are The Walrus.
