Publisher’s Message: 

Thank you for making Parenting Times Magazine Ottawa’s Most Popular local parenting magazine!

Welcome to Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine online. If you like our website, you’ll love our magazine!

In 2009, when we came up with the idea to create a local parenting magazine for Ottawa-area parents, we never imagined it would be so well embraced and grow so fast to become Ottawa’s most popular local parenting magazine. After a few twists and turns along the way, and with a lot of hard work, the first issue of Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine was published in 2010. Our goal in creating a parenting magazine for Ottawa was to ensure the maximum possible circulation, combined with excellent editorial written by our fantastic team of dedicated Ottawa writers.

Our skilled print and social media editors and graphics team have put together a well-written, well-organised layout and a highly-complimented publication, for the benefit of all Ottawa and area parents. In addition, the high-end paper stock, and quality printing of the magazine has been complimented by so many as eye-catching, beautiful and rich in vibrant colours. We appreciate all the great feedback we have received from Ottawa’s parenting and education community.

We sincerely appreciate all the parents reading Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine, as well as your excellent suggestions and positive feedback and of course, your many ideas and suggestions for editorial content. Your reading of the magazine and valuable feedback helps make Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine a better resource.

A special note to our valued advertisers:

Without the support of our valued advertisers, there would be no Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine. I can assure all of our advertisers that we will continue to go the extra mile for you. We will continue to go above and beyond to earn your business. We will continue to provide you with a quality product and the client service deserving of your advertising investment. I will always share our print invoices to confirm our extensive circulation and distribution to anyone that asks.

My 12+ years of personal, dedicated service, as your local parenting ad representative (personal service to so many fantastic independent schools, excellent Ottawa school boards, a cornucopia of summer camps, incredible family travel-tourism destinations and more) has been a joy, especially my personal interest in getting to know and learn about your businesses or education institutions and your advertising needs. I have taken the time to research and to learn more about your location(s), to better understand your various education philosophies and teaching methods, helping us to better understand your message.

My philosophy is to offer affordable prices for advertisers, and not to pressure clients into booking multiple issues if not needed by you. In addition, we will ensure the magazine never becomes too large so busy parents have the time to read it through, and to ensure advertisers’ ads are not buried deep into a magazine that is too large in size and may be missed. Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine is designed for busy Ottawa parents to read cover to cover.

Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine is committed to you and to:

  • Continuing to be the leader in providing excellent editorial from local, national and guest writers
  • Continuing to be the leader in providing the highest circulation possible
  • Continuing to be the leader in distribution of our parenting magazine, with 400 key locations and home delivery
  • Continuing to be the leader in features, education coverage, summer camps, and family travel editorial, health and more
  • Continuing to focus on parenting topics and issues important to Ottawa parents for raising their children
  • Continuing to care about our advertisers’ needs

We have been growing and will continue to work to earn your business and be a valuable tool to deliver your important message to Ottawa parents.
