Our Policies


In addition to featuring display advertising (like banner ads), torontolife.com also occasionally publishes stories or parts of stories that were paid for by and produced with advertising clients—what we call “client-directed content,” and which other publications variously call “custom content,” “branded content,” “native content,” or “sponsored content.” Any torontolife.com story or part of a story that was created at the behest of an advertising client, was provided by them, or was otherwise produced with their input is marked by a button accompanying that content that features that client’s logo and name alongside the words “Brought to you by.”

Your privacy is important to you, and it’s important to us as well. For detailed information about how we protect your privacy, how you can contact us with questions about privacy, or any other privacy-related concerns, please read St. Joseph Communications’ complete privacy policy here.

Editorial Internships

Editorial interns are involved in many aspects of the production of Toronto Life and often subsequently go on to acclaimed work at publications throughout Canada and the U.S. They receive practical experience in research, fact-checking, shadow-editing and writing. Each intern is encouraged to generate ideas and write for the magazine. A voracious appetite for city affairs is essential.

Only students in an academic program requiring internship or co-op experience to graduate will be considered. Applicants should also have excellent oral and written communication skills, and be extremely creative, highly organized and fanatically attentive to detail.

Qualifying candidates must complete the following application and send it, along with a cover letter, a resumé and, if available, published writing samples, to our chief of research, Veronica Maddocks, at vmaddocks@torontolife.com.

1. Generate three ideas for articles in the magazine (about 100 words each). Your proposals should be clearly focused and should indicate why you think these ideas are right for Toronto Life.

2. Write a review of the current issue (about 500 words). We know we’re not perfect, so we expect a critical analysis.

3. Fact-check and copy-edit the following passage, identifying any errors of fact, grammar, punctuation or spelling. Provide a list of all sources used. Veronica Maddocks can be contacted at 416-364-3333, ext. 3056.

Josephine Maddocks didn’t believe in the young man’s existence. Her father had only three brothers, not four. It was only when her daughter Veronica showed her the name on the official website and the familiar address 7 Club Street, Birkenhead England, that she accepted the existence of this previously unknown uncle. Her own father had never mentioned an older brother who died in the mud of Flanders in July 1917 years before she was born, and all those with answers are now themselves dead. George Agnew is buried in the CWC cemetery at Etaple. The small fishing port had evolved into a “hospital city” equipped to deal with 22,000 wounded but the medical care was perfunctory and the injuries horrendous. 14,000 French and British Great War soldiers lay in its commonwealth graves.

“I never knew,” Maddocks told her daughter, “Why didn’t anyone tell me? They talked enough about the death of your great-grandfather. He walked off the edge of the dock and drowned when he was going back to his ship in the early hours of new year’s eve. He was probably drunk. So why would they talk about one and not the other”

Veronica knows only know what the small notation says. But next month the two women are catching the Euro Star at King’s Cross station in London. They will rent a car at Calais Ville and go to visit George’s grave.
