Etc&tal is a bilingual magazine, English, and Portuguese, which is comprised of 36 high gloss color pages and delivered monthly, since 2008.

One look at our magazine will tell you all about us. We are looking to work with companies that like to distinguish themselves as better than the average. Visibility, high profile visibility, will put your company or the service you provide,  in the minds of the consumers, in front of 25.000 people between the ages of 16 and 75 every month in Toronto and the GTA, Mississauga,  and Brampton.

Our magazine flies off the racks just days after they’re dropped off.

You will not see etc&tal magazine left behind piled up at our distribution points. You will see etc&tal in the hands of readers.
When we say that we are the most popular magazine in the Portuguese, Angolan & Brazilian communities, it is true!

Your company name should be in front of the eyes of readers. Your company name should not be left piled in a magazine rack or thrown in the trash.

We take pride in providing our readers with high quality written material delivered with respect and professionalism. The editorial line places emphasis on articles of unbiased nature and offers a wide variety of contents, covering items of interest and current news from around the world.

This way we are maximizing our connection to readers who are part of, do business with or are related to people from different cultures.


What makes us unique?

I can personally assure you that your business is very meaningful to our team and will receive the highest degree of attention. It is very important to stress that your confidence in us will not be misplaced.

No matter what work you do, the most important thing is to be well done with passion, responsibility, and respect.

The etc&tal magazine team creates, runs, promotes and covers many social, cultural, sports, and charitable events. It is a unique way of promoting our culture and also showing the events of different cultures, which keep our readers connected with etc&tal magazine and excited for the next issue.
