Dear Members,

We recognize that many of you are experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

During this challenging time we are working hard to do whatever we can to support our industry. Whether it is working with all levels of government, advertisers, and other important stakeholders, we are leaving no stone unturned in order to provide assistance to publishers, large and small, across the country.

It is in our commitment to support that I'm happy to share with you that the News Media Canada board of directors has agreed to forgo membership fees for the next four months. As a publisher, this decision will save money for members while still allowing News Media Canada to continue its important work with our full support.

We will be sending out information on how this will all work in the coming days. Rest assured, we will ensure that this period of relief will be tailored to your needs. We hope this decision offers you a bit of added peace of mind during this unprecedented health crisis.

While News Media Canada will be trimming its expenditures over the coming months, we are confident that this will have no impact on our ability to the important services we are proud to provide.
