As magazine brands expand their footprints into the digital space, PMB data shows us that smartphone and tablet owners read more PMB-measured print magazines than the average Canadian. This finding suggests that print magazines remain relevant to digital users and that they are fully equipped to access magazine content on their devices.

Despite the ever-increasing number of media choices available, print magazines remain an important and engaging part of Canadians' lives.
