Advertise Local

Advertise Local celebrates and supports brands and businesses across Canada who choose to spend their ad dollars supporting local, Canadian news media.

As part of this national program, the first-ever Local Advertiser List will be created, an evolving summary of businesses across Canada that advertise in Canadian newspapers. The Local Advertiser List will be available on a new website ( and promoted extensively throughout the duration of the program to increase visibility and drive traffic to the businesses on this list.

Advertise Local will be supported by a national ad campaign (print and digital) as well as a social media influencer sponsorship program.  News Media Canada has also developed marketing material to help support this program that can be downloaded from the Publisher Toolkit (confirm your participation below to access the toolkit).
