We need you now more than ever. In turbulent times, it is crucial that reliable media remains available to everyone. That is why we depend on your support to keep our journalism accessible and independent. From economic uncertainty to political polarization, the challenges our society is facing today are too important for half-truths.
At The Walrus, the future of journalism is funded by engaged citizens like you. Together, we can preserve the integrity of Canadian media and ensure that our democracy thrives. Will you join us?
Executive Director, The Walrus
The Walrus was conceived as a national project—an attempt to take the measure of this experiment called Canada. The founding editors were answering what they felt was a need for bold narratives, for a magazine that could reflect the country’s aspirational beliefs. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we might say the gamble paid off. But the table stakes are higher now.
Your participation in the Canadian conversation is more essential than ever. To support The Walrus is to support the value of stories that diagnose not just who we’re not, but celebrate who we are. Can we count on you?
Interim Editor-in-Chief, The Walrus
