About us

The Briar Crier™, published by Margravine Media Inc., is a community news magazine that has been delivered to readers every month for almost 28 years. The magazine is delivered to two adult lifestyle communities, Briar Hill and Green Briar, situated alongside the Nottawasaga Inn (and golf) Resort in Alliston, Ontario.

At present, the magazine is delivered to approximately 2,000 locations: homes in the community, the Briar Hill Sales Office, and select organizations and businesses in the area. Briar Hill continues to be developed with approximately 60 homes added each year.
