Starting today, we’re introducing a new access model at, one that provides a range of options for Maclean’s readers to enjoy the award-winning coverage they’ve come to expect.

Under the new system, visitors will be able to view up to 10 articles and multimedia features per month for free on, with our limited-access pass. After the first three pieces of content, readers will be encouraged to register their email address to view an additional seven without cost. All content available within the limited-access pass will be flagged with a red icon. MAC_homepage_paywall_icon

Subscribers will have unlimited access to all content published at comprehensive news coverage, provocative analysis, video, galleries, podcasts, live chats and more. (Previously published work and some other content, including stories by the Canadian Press, will remain free to view without a subscription.) Those who subscribe will also have access to a selection of exclusive, subscriber-only content, such as our annual university rankings. Subscriber-only content will be flagged with a blue icon. MAC_homepage_paywall_icon_plus
