Subscriptions: Spacing publishes four issues each year. Our Summer and Winter issues are Toronto-centric and our Spring and Fall issues focus on cities across Canada. If you opt for a National issue–only subscription, it will only include the Spring and Fall issues for the duration of your subscription.
For Canadian subscriptions, shipping is included in the price for each subscription. American subscriptions will be charged an additional fee to cover the extra shipping costs.
All of our Canadian subscription mailings are done through Canada Post Publications Mail on a monthly basis. New subscriptions and gift subscriptions automatically start with on the next issue being mailed (ie: if the final mailing for the current newsstand issue has already passed, your subscription will begin with the upcoming issue).

This is in addition to delivery time estimates that may be displayed during the check-out process. Orders for multiple or large sets may require additional processing time based on stock.
