About Us

Q is Canada’s liveliest arts, culture and entertainment magazine. It’s a smart and surprising tour through personalities and cultural issues that matter to Canadians.

Hosted by Jian Ghomeshi, with his trademark wit and spontaneity, Q covers pop culture and high arts alike with forays into the most provocative and compelling cultural trends. From The Kids in the Hall Reunion to an intimate in-house concert by Martha Wainwright; Salman Rushdie on pop culture; CNN operas; to the branding of politicians… Q brings you big names, big ideas, and those paving the way in Canada’s cultural community.

Q is your cultural intervention!
