Maclean's is a Canadian news magazine that was founded in 1905, reporting on Canadian issues such as politics, pop culture, and current events. Its founder, publisher John Bayne Maclean, established the magazine to provide a uniquely Canadian perspective on current affairs and to "entertain but also inspire its readers". Its publisher since 1994 (after acquiring Maclean-Hunter Publishing), Rogers Media announced in September 2016 that Maclean's would become a monthly beginning January 2017, while continuing to produce a weekly issue on the Texture app.[4] In 2019, the magazine was bought by its current publisher, St. Joseph Communications.[5]
