About In The Hills Magazine
In The Hills Magazine is an independent, locally owned print and online magazine that has earned its reputation as a best-read local magazine in Headwaters.
Since 1994, the quarterly magazine has focused on telling stories about the region’s communities, environment, arts, food, leisure and more, establishing it as a cultural cornerstone for everyone who cherishes these hills as home – or hopes to one day.
In The Hills is delivered to more than 40,000 homes and farms throughout Caledon, Erin, Dufferin, Orangeville and Creemore – up to double the circulation of any other local publication. And it is available to visitors at local inns, restaurants, specialty retail stores and other tourist locations.
“The magazine’s goal is not only to reflect life here in the hills, but to deepen our understanding of this rich and complex community and the splendid countryside we inhabit,” says publisher Signe Ball.
