What you’ll find on the new

Easier navigation, bolder images and a better reading experience. However you want to join the conversation, we are ready where you are

Introducing the new improved and redesigned to deliver on multiple platforms the rich experience that makes Maclean’s Canada’s most read, most indispensable source of news, opinion and analysis.

We overhauled our design—with easier navigation, a cleaner look and bigger photographs—to improve your reading experience in a digital world, whether on a desktop monitor, laptop, tablet or phone. However you want to join in the national conversation, we are ready where you are.

What’s not new is our dedication to delivering essential reading on the stories at home and around the world that matter to Canadians. It’s the award-winning work Maclean’s has done for more than 109 years. It’s a job we take seriously.

From the bold images on the home page to the distinctive author pages, we have also reorganized to better showcase the work that we do best.

The new brings you face to face with our authors. Blog Central is gone, replaced by a drop-down author menu where you will find all your favourite Maclean’s voices—yes, even the ones you love to hate. (More on reader comments in a minute.)


The section menu directs you to the latest news, opinion and analysis, plus engaging writing on arts, culture, education, society, and the way we live now.

Maclean’s Politics remains your home for thought-provoking analysis from Ottawa, Washington and abroad. We’re also there live when news is unfolding. When Parliament is in session, QP Live brings political theatre to your screen with rolling commentary. Maclean’s on the Hill, our weekly podcast, serves up frank talk and analysis about the news that matters. Led by the award-winning writers in our Ottawa bureau, is the essential destination for anyone who cares about politics in Canada.

In our Economy hub, you’ll find business coverage led by Maclean’s business editor Jason Kirby and the latest thinking from Canada’s leading economists: Stephen Gordon, Andrew Leach, Kevin Milligan and Michael Moffatt.

We’ve reorganized our On Campus coverage to better serve today’s high school, university and college students—before, during and after graduation. In addition to our new Education section, we’ve added one devoted to Work, a go-to source for the latest on employment trends.


Above all else, we wanted our thought-provokers and opinion-makers to be front and centre. We want you to engage.
