Maisonneuve is an English-language general interest magazine based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] It publishes eclectic stories of national and international scope on the arts, culture and politics.

History and profile[edit]

Established in 2002[2] by Derek Webster, the magazine is named after Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the founder of Montreal. It defines its mandate as "to dissolve artistic borders between regions, countries, languages, and genres". Drew Nelles served as the editor-in-chief of the magazine.[3]

Maisonneuve has won many awards for its writing, covers, illustration and photojournalism. It was named Magazine of the Year in both 2005[4] and 2012 (National Magazine Awards), Small Magazine of the Year in 2006 (Editors' Choice Awards) and Newsstand Magazine of the Year (Canadian Newsstand Awards) in 2007, among many other awards for individual features.
