You can, but we must receive your request before the closing date. Contract cancellations will be short-rated to the rate closest to the number of print ads run and/or amount of online display.
All ad material should be sent by 2 pm, 3 business days prior to publication.
If new material is not received by the deadline, we reserve the right to use prior ad material.
Sure! Just send us the text and any artwork, photo, and font you would like us to use. Our in-house graphic artist will assemble the ad for you. Please note that we cannot design ads for other newspapers or use copyrighted pictures.
We publish 10,000 newspapers per week throughout the school year. The McGill Daily publishes 5,000 copies on Mondays, while Le Délit publishes 5,000 copies on Tuesdays.
Our newspapers are distributed throughout the McGill campus and at a few key locations in downtown Montreal. To see a map with our distribution points you can visit our Publications page.
Our readers include McGill undergraduate and graduate students aged 17-30, faculty, administrators and support staff, as well as campus visitors. Our diverse potential readership is over 40,000 per issue.
That decision is left to our editors. Please send us the text as early as possible and we will submit it for their approval.
Sure! Depending on the length of your text, we may need to charge a translator’s fee, however. Send us your text and we will provide you with an estimate.
We always proofread our ads before sending them to print and will gladly correct a few mistakes for you. If the text contains more than 10 mistakes or is deemed incomprehensible, we may ask you for a revised version or offer to rephrase or retranslate it ourselves. Whether we request a fee will depend on the length and complexity of your text. Our translator will provide you with an estimate.
We do not accept advertising on our Facebook pages at this time. However, we may use Facebook and other social media to promote a contest or giveaway. Please contact for more information.
