Canadian Natural Health Retailer

Canadian Natural Health Retailer (CNHR) is Canada’s premier business magazine for health food stores. In September 2020, Alive Publishing Group (APG) acquired CNHR, further strengthening APG’s partnership with both retailers and manufacturers.


Founded in 1997, CNHR is the only magazine in Canada that focuses solely on health food stores. Its mandate is to help retailers improve their business (and bottom line) through better hiring and training practices, improved advertising, marketing, and other business aspects. Any content that helps retailers enhance their business is potential editorial for CNHR.


CNHR is sent to 2,500 store owners, managers, buyers, and staff of virtually every health food store in Canada. However, its readership goes deeper than that number. A 2009 survey of readers indicates that each copy of CNHR is read by 4.7 people. CNHR reaches the trained professionals who not only buy natural health products, but also sell those products to consumers.


CNHR advertisers are guaranteed one thing: retailers are going to see the advertisement and editorial content, be it a new product release, a new staff member, or any other company-related notice. Retailers read and care about CNHR. Advertising in CNHR ensures that retailers across Canada are going to learn about the advertising brand, which will make the selling process easier.
