Could help for newspapers be coming?

Federal Heritage Minister Melanie Joly said she would not rule out helping Canada's newspaper industry, in a speech made late last week to Montreal's Board of Trade.

“I fully appreciate the struggles that different media are facing,” she said. “I have said several times: everything is on the table. I am ready to talk about the different tools we have as a government to help and promote these areas.”

Newspapers Canada continues to work with the federal government on several policy issues. You can learn more about them in the public affairs section of our website.
