Editorial Guidelines

Canada’s History Society publishes Canada’s History magazine (formerly The Beaver) and Kayak: Canada's History Magazine for Kids.

Canada’s History is published six times a year in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Founded in 1920 by the Hudson’s Bay Company, the magazine was acquired by Canada’s History Society in 1994 and is now the Society’s chief instrument in its efforts to promote interest in and knowledge of Canadian history.

Please note: We do not publish memoirs; you may want to contact Our Canada instead.


Kayak magazine launched in 2004. It is published four times a year in English, with a shorter French version available in conjunction with the publication Les Debrouillards. We occasionally publish full-length French versions.

Kayak does not use freelance-generated poems or puzzles. Freelance contributions must fit with the issue’s theme, as well as using age-appropriate language and concepts. Our limited budget allows for no more than one freelance item per issue. If you have a story idea about Canadian history that would be of interest for readers aged seven to 13, please send a short email outline to the editor, along with an indication of your experience writing for children.
