On a daily basis, Canadians are surrounded by media, bombarded by thousands of brand messages daily on an increasing number of traditional and digital platforms. However, exposure does not equal influence or guarantee an ad will be seen. Multi-media campaigns (traditional + digital) result in stronger consumer trust and engagement in a world where advertisers must compete for the attention of consumers.

This 2018 research study, funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage, explores the trusted relationship Canadians have with their local newspaper in an increasingly digital world dominated by search engines, social media and ad blocking.
