Q: How much do class subscriptions cost? Is there a minimum order?

And with any class subscription the teacher’s copy of the magazine is complimentary!

Q: Does my class subscription include teacher support material?

A: Once you place a class subscription you will be able to download sample lesson plans that can be used with any issue of the magazine. Unfortunately we are not able to provide issue-specific materials.

Q: How soon after I place my order will I start receiving my magazines?

A: For semestered programs, you may choose between a fall and spring semester start date. For non-semestered programs, you may subscribe for the whole school year by choosing the number of issues that’s right for your class. You may also choose to start with the next available issue. Delivery is generally 2 weeks after order date.

Q: Can I, my school or the school board be billed for my class subscription?

A: This offer is credit card only.

Q: When can I expect delivery of my magazines?

A: Copies are delivered by Canada Post courier. Generally, urban Ontario subscribers can expect to receive copies Friday or Monday, Central Canada subscribers Tuesday or Wednesday and Eastern/Western Canada the following Thursday or Friday.

Q: Can I choose how often I receive my magazines?

A: No, once the subscription is on the system, the magazines will arrive weekly for Maclean’s and bi-weekly for Canadian Business. You may consider sharing the subscription with another teacher and alternate using each shipment. Some issues are combined during the year and count as two subscription issues. For these double issues, you will only receive one shipment of magazines.

Q: What happens if the number of students in my class changes?

A: In the event of a change in number of copies to be delivered, please contact customer service at 1-800-268-6811 for Maclean’s magazine and 1-800-465-0700 for Canadian Business magazine. For refunds, the credit card used to place the order will be credited. Requests for additional copies must be paid for by credit card at the time of the adjustment.

Q: How can I reduce the cost of the subscription?

A: Many of our current program subscribers share the subscription with another teacher. This significantly reduces the cost per student.

Q: Can I split the subscription so that a part of it is in effect during the first semester and a part of it during the second semester?

A: No, once the subscription is on the system, the magazines will arrive weekly for Maclean’s and bi-weekly for Canadian Business until the end of your chosen term.

Q: Can I photocopy magazine articles?

A: Magazine articles may be reproduced only by the subscribing teachers for use by their students in the classroom.

Q: Where do I call if I’m having problems with the delivery my magazines or want to inquire about my subscription?
