These programs are dependent on funding.

Internship Subsidy Program

Since 2010, MagsBC has subsidized dozens of internships at a variety of member magazines, making it easier for publishers and staff to bring in new talent, get some much-needed support for their operations, and help develop the next generation of publishing professionals. As of Dec. 2021, we are not accepting subsidy applications, as funding has been fully committed.

Magazine Coach Program

MagsBC pairs “coaches”, experts in a particular area, with member magazines for a half-day consultation and a summary of recommendations afterwards.
Normally, participating magazines contribute $100 toward the consultation. However, currently, we are asking magazine publishers to pay what they can.
In addition, members can apply for a two-hour follow-up consultation with an expert six months to a year after their first consultation to assist with roadblocks or further initiatives.

Professional Development

Since its inception, the Magazine Association of BC has offered relevant and timely professional development seminars and webinars at various times during the year to complement its Magazines West Conference. We have suspended our conference until 2023 and instead will offer professional development sessions, workshops, and discussion panels online.
