Through consultation with stakeholders, Ontario Creates has created a range of programs and resources to provide financial, strategic and research support to Ontario’s cultural entrepreneurs and established trade and event organizations from the magazine publishing industry.

Ontario Creates support provides opportunities for magazine publishers to promote new products, develop existing markets, access new markets and grow their business.

Support is also available to established trade and event organizations for events and activities that stimulate the growth of Ontario's book publishing industry.

Business Intelligence Program grants are also available to incorporated not-for-profit industry organizations undertaking initiatives that support or complement the mandate of the Ontario Creates.
