The Alberta Magazine Publishers Association is a member-driven, not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting the people who create, publish, print and distribute the province’s rich diversity of publications.
Throughout the year, AMPA offers professional development opportunities, consultations with industry experts, and hosts Canada’s largest magazine conference and awards gala to inspire members and elevate their publications.
If you’re looking for a new opportunity, need to fill a role in your organization, are searching for the right contributor for a project, or want to share your time and talent in supporting AMPA and industry colleagues, we can help make a connection.
AMPA is your source of the latest news about developments in Alberta’s magazine industry, opportunities, and emerging trends and best practices. We also offer an extensive collection of resources for those looking to enter the industry or veterans keen on continuous improvement.
With each issue, Alberta magazines offer a fresh perspective on nearly every aspect of life in our province. No matter what your interest – current affairs, politics, fitness, literature, food, culture or more – there is a publication to keep you entertained and informed.
