The Daily, Le Délit and the Daily Publications Society
The McGill Daily began as a daily sports rag in 1911 and has served the McGill community ever since, evolving into its current format as an alternative media outlet. The Daily currently produces a print issue every week, online content, as well as Unfit to Print, its podcast produced in collaboration with CKUT.
Le Délit was introduced in 1977. It was first limited to a French section of the regular McGill Daily, then grew to be its own weekly French issue (then called Le McGill Daily Français) before separating itself from The Daily in 1979, becoming its sister newspaper.

Affordable advertising solutions
Both The McGill Daily and Le Délit make their continuously-updated content available online and over the radio, in addition to putting out two papers on stands across campus each week, allowing them to reach a broad audience. In addition, Le Délit is the only francophone newspaper on campus, bringing students closer to the surrounding community and strengthening a vital link between McGill and Montreal.

An independent publisher
The Daily, Le Délit, as well as the DPS are student-run. This means any McGill student can get involved as a contributor, editor, or sit on our Board of Directors. The DPS also employs a business team which handles advertising and ensures the smooth running of day-to-day operations. Additionally, we hold general meetings each year to give members more opportunity to help shape the organisation. The DPS is administered by a Board of Directors made up of twelve directors. Seven of them are elected by the membership at the Annual General Meeting; the remaining five are ex-officio directors representing the Society’s newspapers and employees.
At a school with no journalism program, The Daily and Le Délit provide any interested McGill students with a hands-on experience in researching and reporting stories and producing a newspaper. Over the years, our alumni have gone on to work for the CBC/Radio-Canada, Maisonneuve, the Montreal Gazette, the National Post, La Presse, On the Media, Briarpatch Magazine, rabble.ca, the Associated Press, Saturday Night Live, France Bleu, Marianne, France Télévisions, and Radio France Internationale among others, reinforcing the DPS’s identity as an alternative journalism school on a campus that doesn’t offer formal journalistic training.
If you have any questions regarding the DPS, please do not hesitate to contact us.
