Do you want your written word to have a meaningful impact to hundreds of thousands of people?

Credible, accessible, and trusted content has become harder to sift through in this current landscape of 1-click publish.

But that’s where you come in.

Your uncompromising high standards will champion consumers in every piece of differentiated content we publish.

Who we are

WeyMedia is a proudly Maritime company with a simple mission:

Make money easy and fun for everyone.

To do that, we strive to make both and the most trusted resource in the Canadian personal finance sphere. Although we’re a young company, these two websites have already become two of the top sources of information for Canadian consumers and financial products.

Our team helps over 400,000 Canadians make the best financial and money-saving decisions by crafting accurate and high-quality personal finance content, technology, comparison tools, and reviews.

We also actively reward our readers through GeniusCash ‒ our very own cash back rewards program on participating credit cards and financial products. Through this program, we paid out over $2,000,000 to thousands of Canadians since 2022.

(And if that wasn’t enough, we recently gave away a Tesla Model 3!)

So if you want to help us make it easy for Canadians to make smart financial decisions, read on…
