The Canadian news media landscape has changed and evolved more over the last decade than ever before. We’re living in the age of information overload. Without tools to distinguish fact from fiction or help us find what’s relevant to our day-to-day lives, misinformation makes it easy to get lost and confused.
Independent local news media outlets are essential to providing Canadians with the factual and reliable information they need. Canadians need to know where and how to access credible news.
National Newspaper Week is an annual opportunity to recognize the critical role that newspapers play in an active and healthy democracy and is celebrated in North America starting on the first Sunday in October. Local newspapers deliver vital information to Canadians, connecting local communities across the country and keeping citizens informed, engaged, and connected.
It’s no secret that thousands of news stories are published in Canada each day. From local community features to national breaking news stories, the people behind the press work tirelessly to ensure readers have access to credible news they can trust.
