The Walrus launched in September 2003 with a straightforward mandate: to be a national general interest magazine about Canada and its place in the world and to present the best work by the best writers and artists, on a wide range of topics for curious Canadians. The Walrus is published by the charitable, non-profit Walrus Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting writers, artists, ideas, and to creating forums for conversations on matters vital to Canadians. We achieve these goals by publishing The Walrus magazine ten times a year, curating the national series of Walrus Talks, organizing leadership dinners, and posting original, daily content at thewalrus.ca. The foundation also trains the future leaders in media, publishing, and non-profit development.
