Frequently Asked Questions

When are issues published?

Build Canada Magazine is published 6 times a year,  releasing new issues every February, April, June, August, September, and December.

How do I submit an article?

All submissions should follow proper manuscript format.  Submissions should be emailed to editor@build-canada.ca

What do we look for in projects?

The exceptional, the unusual, the ambitious, and the delightful.  Any residential project is eligible if it is under four or so years old, not widely published on a national basis (either in print or online), has a strong architect/designer at the helm and a talented builder.

It's past the submission deadline. Can I still send my submission?

We sometimes have room for last minute submissions in the digital edition, so it’s worth it to at least send your piece in. Late submissions received before the issue appears online will also be considered for inclusion on the website. That being said, please always get your submissions to us as soon as you can!
