Canadian Dimension is a leading voice of the left in Canada since 1963. Standing in solidarity with local and global struggles for social justice, it offers a critical perspective on the issues of the day, placing special emphasis on the Canadian scene. It discusses prospects and strategies for social change at home and abroad, and provides a space for dialogue among socialists and other radicals. Written in plain language, Canadian Dimension addresses a diverse readership including political activists, community organizers, trade unionists, students, academics and all those seeking alternatives to the corporate media.
In sum, our mission is to provide in-depth analysis on important political and social issues around the world.
Canadian Dimension welcomes submissions from both established and upstart writers, reporters and artists from across Canada and beyond. To be considered for publication, we request a short pitch (not exceeding 200 words) outlining your subject, approach and sources.
Please ensure the content you are submitting is original and free of any unauthorized advertising or promotional materials.
As Canada’s longest-standing voice of the left, we encourage writers to familiarize themselves with Canadian Dimension’s editorial vision and content before sending us your written work. We are especially interested in coverage that has not appeared in mainstream sources, or stories that investigate Canadian issues from the perspective of Indigenous, racialized or otherwise marginalized groups.
Canadian Dimension welcomes all matter of submissions, including op-eds, news analysis, book and film reviews, photographic essays and poetry. We are also open to discussing alternative projects with you, where appropriate.
We ask that submissions follow some basic stylistic guidelines:
Please refrain from first-person narratives, wherever possible (avoid “I” and “me”).
Keep it brief. For first-time writers, we suggest limiting your work to 1,000 words.
Send final drafts only.
Adhere to Canadian Press (CP) style.
Use subheadings to break up longer pieces.
Include hyperlinks to substantiate assertions and references.
Reviewed content should not be older than one year.
We especially welcome short comments (50-100 words) on topics of the day as contributions to a new section called Dimension Pundits. These can be submitted frequently or occasionally.
