Mark your calendars.
It's almost National Newspaper Week!
Newspaper journalism—both local and national—is critically important, especially in the reality in which we live.
National Newspaper Week (NNW) is designed to recognize the role that newspapers and their sites play in providing Canadians with credible, factual news and spotlight why news media continue to be a trusted source of information that is critical to our democracy.
The fact that Canadians are concerned about fake news and disinformation reinforces the need for media literacy. National Newspaper Week aims to ensure Canadians understand and appreciate the critical role that newspapers play in our democracy and in providing us with trusted, credible information.
To celebrate this year’s National Newspaper Week and give Canadians the chance to wear their support on their sleeve, News Media Canada has partnered with iconic Canadian fashion designer Hayley Elsaesser to launch a limited-edition capsule collection.
The Champion the Truth capsule collection is a celebration and recognition of the essential service newspapers provide by delivering credible, diverse, local and original journalism in Canada.
The collection is inspired by Hayley’s Opa (grandfather) who was the proud owner and publisher of a local newspaper in British Columbia. Each item is emblazoned with the words “news” and “truth” in various languages spoken across Canada, and features her iconic mouthy print design. The overall collection highlights the strength of Canada’s diversity, and reflects on the important role newspapers play in providing credible, factual reporting and a voice for local communities across the country, keeping them connected to what matters most.
