Vervegirl is a Canadian teen magazine published by Youth Culture.


Vervegirl is a Canadian in-school magazine based in Toronto for young women aged 13–24. Vervegirl engages young women through lifestyle, global causes, fashion, entertainment, career, health and beauty.

Published 5 times per year, Vervegirl can be found in over 1,100 high schools in 600 markets. Starting in 2005, they began releasing special issues exclusively through Wal-Mart Canada.[2] Articles can also be found at its website, which serves as a social networking site for its readers.

The Toronto-based magazine launched Vervegirl Toronto, a digest-sized, city-specific publication marketed to a previously-untapped teen audience in March 2006.[3] On March 5, 2007, the magazine announced a tour of eight Canadian high schools with Keshia Chanté, designed as a way to "connect with its readers using music" and provide "a platform for discussion on the importance of music programs in the high school curriculum."[4] Then in 2011, they teamed with Winners to host a styling contest created by Ogilvy and featuring Danny Fernandes and Mia Martina. Through an app on Facebook, contestants dressed up celebrity avatars to win a chance to style the celebrity in real life.[5]

Those mentioned or featured in the magazine include Tyler Medeiros, Jaclyn Kenyon, Keshia Chanté, and Elise Estrada. Nina Dobrev and Lauren Collins of Degrassi: The Next Generation fame were featured in a special issue in 2007.[6] In September 2009, the magazine featured Tracy Spiridakos to promote tween comedy series Majority Rules for Canadian network Teletoon.[7]

Vervegirl magazine was sold to Family Communications Inc. as of March 2014. Youthculture Inc. (the previous publisher) continued on in the youth field creating "shift2" a digital agency working with brands on YouTube.


Vervegirl is the executive produce of the second season of The Avenue, a web reality show starring Gregory Gorgeous.
