"Chart" is a monthly Canadian music magazine. It is currently the only English Canadian popular music consumer magazine operating as a paid newsstand and subscriber title.

Launched in 1991 as "National Chart", the magazine was started by York University students Edward Skira and Nada Laskovski as a tipsheet and airplay chart for campus radio stations in Canada. The magazine soon grew to include interviews, CD reviews and other features. "National Chart" was considered an internal publication for the National Campus and Community Radio Association, Canada's association of campus radio stations, and was not available as a newsstand title.

When Skira and Laskovski graduated, they incorporated "Chart" as an independent magazine, and began to pursue national newsstand distribution. Although it is no longer an NCRA publication, many campus radio stations continue to file airplay reports for the magazine's Top 50 chart.

The magazine's primary focus is Canadian alternative rock and indie rock, although they profile important international acts, and rap and pop music acts as well.

A monthly chart appears in each issue. Weekly charts can be viewed on the magazine's website.

Reader polls

In 1996, 2000 and 2005, the magazine conducted polls of readers, musicians and music industry professionals to determine the 50 best Canadian albums and songs of all time. There were 25 albums and 18 songs which ranked in the top 50 in all three polls.
