Newspapers Canada met with representatives from Canadian Heritage last week to discuss the Aid to Publishers component of the Canada Periodical Fund. Within the next two weeks, newspapers will receive a letter notifying them on the status on their application. Eligible newspapers can expect a cheque for the first instalment, representing 80% of total funding, in the weeks to follow.
The second installment will be distributed in January 2012.
Newspapers Canada will continue to update members with information as it becomes available via email and online at www.newspaperscanada.ca.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact Newspapers Canada’s chief executive officer John Hinds at firstname.lastname@example.org.
