A\J is Canada’s only national magazine focused on the environment. We’ve been chronicling the Canadian environmental movement since the beginning, showcasing the best in ideas, social innovation and technology that inspire everyday people to make a difference. As a not-for-profit, independent media source, A\J relies on our donors to help us tell these vital stories.
Three reasons to support A\J
A\J inspires hope
Media coverage of environmental issues has focused on doom and gloom defeatism. A\J provides a balanced and independent alternative that chronicles the progress being made. We believe that the best response to our times is hope.
A\J gives voice to the environmental movement
Independent voices are being silenced across the country by the consolidation of media outlets, multi-million dollar corporate misinformation campaigns and the muzzling of publicly-funded science. A\J provides a forum for all stakeholders to be heard.
A\J is a catalyst for change
Every issue, through feature articles and interviews with innovators and newsmakers, we help Canadians realize that they have the power to effect real change. By supporting A\J, you are helping to inform, catalyze and lift up the individuals who can make a difference.

Give more with less
Donations over $20 will receive a charitable tax receipt. The tax credits you’ll receive lower the actual cost to you, meaning your money will go a longer way to help raise Canada’s environmental voice – and you’ll have the extra satisfaction of knowing the government is helping you support the environment.
*These are approximate numbers based on Ontario provincial tax credits. Use Canada Revenue Agency’s charitable donation tax credit calculator to calculate your credit.
|Actual cost to you*||$20||$40||$80||$190|
And, if you’re a first time donor, you’ll get even more back in tax credits. For example, first-time donors who make a $100 donation will receive approximately $45 in total tax credits. Learn more about the First-Time Donor's Super Credit.
