About Us


The Hill Times, Canada’s politics and government newsweekly, first rolled off the presses on Oct. 5, 1989, changing the coverage of Canadian federal politics and government forever. We’ve been on a roll ever since.

Now publishing across multiple platforms, our readers can get their political fix from their favourite medium.


The Hill Times is independently owned and based in Ottawa. Breaking exclusive stories and blazing trails every week, we’re an influential must-read for the savvy political and government insider.

Our readers include Cabinet ministers, MPs, Senators, political staffers, lobbyists, backroomers, political junkies, lots of influential players in Parliament, Cabinet, the Prime Minister’s Office, the Privy Council, the Finance Department, Treasury Board, the Department of National Defence, the Justice Department, and more.

We give political players and decision-makers a key platform to communicate with each other within government.


The Hill Times’ reporters break exclusive news stories that delve deep into Canada’s federal political world—from the backrooms, to Cabinet, and to caucus meetings. We bring our readers the news they need in order to understand political shifts and to navigate their work with and around government. We also cover Parliament Hill and federal politics and government like a community.


Our substantive policy briefings and regular coverage of developing public policy issues are essential for stakeholders and for anyone working on public policy in Canada. From policy development, to committee work, to legislation, The Hill Times is the trusted source for policy news.

Be informed. Stay inside the loop. Enjoy.
