Canada Post’s actions could further damage Canada’s news industry

Last month, News Media Canada issued a press release calling on all federal party leaders to commit to restricting Canada Post’s plans to expand its flyer distribution using an unfair advantage provided to them by the government.

Canada Post has plans to begin distributing packaged commercial flyers in direct competition with local newspapers. Canada Post is using its ability to access lock boxes in apartments and condos as part of its marketing of the plan.

As you all know, flyers are a key component of the news business. To help you make your voice heard, we’re happy to offer a public service ad that you can run in your newspaper.

Members can download a copy of the ad to run in their publications here. Working files and social media images are also available to download by clicking here.
