Community Newspapers
The Choice of Atlantic Canadians

Atlantic Canada's weekly community newspapers offer an excellent route into hundreds of thousands of households. Most of the 504,211 readers live in rural communities, not well serviced by other media. Often "their paper" is the only source they consult for making purchases. Even in markets supported by provincial dailies or radio and television stations from urban areas, the local weekly still comes out in front as the choice for making buying decisions.

Through our linkages and partnerships, we can take your message far beyond Atlantic Canadian borders delivering you a provincial or Canada-wide readership.

You can choose up to 581 weekly newspapers, region-by-region, or province-by-province for a total circulation up to 5,591,382 copies.
