Encyclopedia > Chart (magazine)

Chart is a monthly Canadian music magazine. It is currently the only English Canadian popular music magazine (as opposed to specialty magazines such as Canadian Musician) operating as a paid newsstand and subscriber title.


Launched in 1991 as National Chart, the magazine was started by York University students Edward Skira and Nada Laskovski as a tipsheet and airplay chart for campus radio stations in Canada. The magazine soon grew to include interviews, CD reviews and other features. It was considered an internal publication for the National Campus and Community Radio Association, Canada's association of campus radio stations, and was not available as a newsstand title.


When Skira and Laskovski graduated, they incorporated Chart as an independent magazine, and began to pursue national newsstand distribution. Although it was no longer an NCRA publication, many campus radio stations continued to file airplay reports for the magazine's Top 50 chart.


In 1996, the magazine conducted a poll of readers, musicians and music industry professionals to determine the 50 best Canadian albums of all time. The top album in that poll was a surprise winner, Twice Removed by Sloan.


The top five were rounded out by Joni Mitchell's Blue in second place, Neil Young's Harvest in third, The Tragically Hip's Up to Here in fourth and Rheostatics' Whale Music in fifth. (When the magazine repeated the poll in 2000, Blue topped the poll, followed by Harvest in second place, Twice Removed in third, Whale Music in fourth, and another Rheostatics album, Melville, in fifth. Up to Here fell to 22nd place.)


The magazine's primary focus is Canadian alternative rock and indie rock, although they profile important international acts, and rap and pop music acts as well.


A monthly chart appears in each issue. Weekly charts can be viewed on the magazine's website.
