Our Times is Canada's only independent labour magazine. We rely on the participation and support of the labour community in making each issue a great magazine – and in helping us survive. There are many ways you can participate.

Our Times is not an academic publication, it is not a hip publication. It's a pro-union workers' publication. We don’t receive funding from for-profit corporations. We operate on a tight budget with a staff of two, making sure there is a place for workers’ voices in the Canadian media. Please help us continue to publish by donating now.

Spread the Word
Include Our Times flyers in your mailings, conference kits, meetings, workshops, and classes - or drop them off at your local community centre, library, or anywhere else where people can pick them up. Let us know how many flyers you need, when your next event is, and where, and we’ll make sure you have the flyers in time. Contact our office for more info
Our Times makes a great learning resource for your classes and workshops. You’ll find stories from frontline workers, youth organizing in retail, health care workers fighting to keep health care public, miners campaigning to make workrelated deaths a crime, and factory workers talking about what literacy means to them. We have reduced costs when you buy multiple copies of a single issue, when you buy individual articles and for multiple subscriptions. We also have reduced rates for back issues.
