The ODC certifies the circulation of many Quebec publications. To be a member of the ODC is to be part of a reliable network, recognized by publishers, advertisers and readers both in Quebec and in the rest of Canada. ODC certification is therefore of paramount importance.
To ensure that the information collected is reliable and reflects actual distribution, strict rules are observed.Any publication wishing to join the ODC must have been in existence for at least six months. The aim of this rule is to make certain that the weekly or monthly publication seeking certification has durability.
New member publications over six months old will be able to use the logo as soon as Samson Bélair/Deloitte & Touche has completed certification.The number of copies distributed is certified automatically on a regular basis. When circulation increases by more that 20% or 10,000 copies, a special certification is performed.
