The Walrus was named Canada's best general interest magazine at the Canadian Magazine Awards in April 2017.

From the Walrus: WHY “THE WALRUS”?

The Walrus’s founders sought dissociate Canada from the “log chomping” and “earnestness” of our national animal (and cliché), the beaver.

Enter the walrus: an arctic icon that is curmudgeonly but clever, bulky but agile—the perfect symbol for a publication with the intellectual heft, confidence, and wit to dig deeply into matters vital to Canadians.

Like its namesake, which swims with unexpected grace, The Walrus is Canada’s elegant heavyweight.
