Rogers Appears To Have Kept Grants For Magazines It No Longer Operates
The company closed, sold off, or cut back on each of the 16 publications that had received federal grant money for the entire year

Rogers Media appears to have kept all of the $8,906,846 from 16 federal grants it received for its periodicals for the 2016-17 funding period, despite the media conglomerate either closing, selling, or scaling back the print schedule of each publication at the end of last year.

“The 16 grant amounts were paid out to Rogers Media Inc. in full, as they met the eligibility criteria for the Aid to Publishers 2016-2017 funding cycle,” Canadian Heritage spokesperson Tim Warmington said by email.
