The Grid was a weekly newspaper in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, published from 2011 to 2014. The paper was launched on May 12, 2011, after owner Torstar discontinued publication of its previous title Eye Weekly.[1][2]

According to editor Laas Turnbull, the publication's strategy was to be a "younger, hipper, more provocative version of Toronto Life in a weekly guise".[1] Print circulation was as high as 70,000 per week, while website hits averaged 400,000 unique visitors per month.[3]

Contributors to the new publication included several former Eye Weekly writers. As of July 2014 there were 22 staff, of whom 12 worked in editorial capacities.[3]

On July 2, 2014, Torstar announced that The Grid would be discontinued as of July 3, due to insufficient revenues.[4] 162 issues were printed in all.[3]
