The Globe and Mail, “Canada’s National Newspaper”, is the largest newspaper with national circulation. It publishes a travel section, Globe Travel, every Saturday, and one other day each week. It also includes travel coverage and ads in its Globe Life sections on other days.

The digital version of Globe travel, which does not include the front page can be found here.
