When & Where
The Walrus Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization with an educational mandate to support public debate on matters vital to Canadians. The foundation is dedicated to promoting Canadian writers, artists, readers, and ideas.
We achieve these goals, first and foremost, by publishing The Walrus, the most awarded magazine in Canada. The Walrus is a monthly publication of ideas, sophistication, and wit, and a place where readers, writers, and artists meet. It is supported by TheWalrus.ca, which offers both archives and original content, and Walrus TV, which features exclusive documentaries inspired by stories from the magazine.
Through national events, the Walrus Foundation is committed to the public square, to celebrating Canadian talent, and to increasing participation in our democracy through spirited and intelligent debate—by lifting the magazine off the page and onto the stage in public forums.
The Walrus Foundation is supported by individuals, foundations, partnerships, corporate donors, and public sector grants. The Walrus magazine is supported by advertisers, corporate sponsors, subscribers, and newsstand sales. The magazine’s charitable status depends on its editorial content, which must make up 70 percent of its pages, and is required to be 80 percent educational and 80 percent Canadian.
A volunteer Educational Review Committee, composed of academics from universities across Canada, assists the foundation in fulfilling its mandate.
The Walrus Foundation and The Walrus magazine are grateful to both the Board of Directors and the Advisory Council for their support, expertise, and dedication.
We would like to express our deep gratitude to the Chawkers Foundation for its generous ongoing support. The Walrus also acknowledges the financial support of the Government of Canada, the Trillium Foundation, and the Ontario Arts Council.
