About Us

News Media Canada is the voice of the print and digital media industry in Canada. We represent over 800 trusted titles in every province and territory.

News Media Canada was created in late 2016, as a product of the agreement by its members to merge the Canadian Newspaper Association (CNA) and the Canadian Community Newspaper Association (CCNA) into a single board of directors. Prior to this change, our organization was known as Newspapers Canada.

By combining resources and collaborating on a variety of different projects News Media Canada provides relevant services to all member media organizations. These services are concentrated in three major areas:

As an advocate in public policy, News Media Canada enables daily and community media outlets from coast to coast to speak with a unified voice when promoting their interests to governments, regulators and the general public. These interests include such issues as taxation, employment standards, recycling, Canada Post, freedom of information, the Canada Periodical Fund, privacy and copyright. In this capacity News Media Canada monitors, analyzes and lobbies against legislation potentially harmful to newspapers and freedom of the press.
