Why CommunityWire

Be Seen Where Your Audience is Looking — In Community Newspapers

CommunityWire is simply your best bet for ensuring that your news content results in a news story that will get read by Canadians.

The fact is more Canadians get their news from their community newspaper than from any other source*. Indeed, studies show that more people access the news through newspapers than through any other medium — with fully 80% of Canadians having read a community newspaper within the past week. Simply put, no other medium is more accessed and more trusted than a newspaper.

Owned and operated by the member newspapers of Newspapers Canada, CommunityWire provides a reliable and trusted means of getting your message out to community newspapers across Canada, in both official languages. The editors of over 1,100 newspapers are subscribed to CommunityWire, ensuring that your content is being delivered right to their e-mail inbox from a source they trust — the news distribution service that they themselves own.

In addition to providing timely distribution to the news outlets that you want to reach, our service will post your release on our website, as well as send it out by Twitter and RSS feeds to editors and journalists from across our member newspapers. We also will archive your content online for up to a year, allowing easy, searchable, access for users.

*Recent ComBase. NADbank and StatHebdo readership studies show that community, daily and ethnocultural newspapers have a wider issue-reach than any other medium.
