Newspapers are more important now, than they ever have been! Getting vital information across to your area. 

We can help you!

Our Association, 32 Member  Community Newspapers & their Staff, Publishers, MCNA Staff will all be doing their part to keep operations as close to normal as possible during this time, as we are considered an extremely valuable and essential/critical service to Manitobans - especially now. Readers are depending on our newspapers more than ever.

We are thankful to our customers for continuing to get their messaging out to the public through us, and trusting us to do so. The over 368,000+ dedicated households/readers in Manitoba are relying on our Member Community Newspapers. More than ever, people will be at home and social distancing, and reading the paper for accurate, relevant and timely information.

We have made some changes to safeguard the health of our staff and the public. We are limiting in person contact with the public currently, as we want to do our part in social distancing, and limit exposures. We ask that customers not attend the office in person for the time being. 

Deliveries or trades people attending for essential services will be required to wear a mask when attending the property in person and in addition, follow any and all provincial public health orders or mandates.

You can continue to reach us by email and phone. You will find emails listed on the contact page. 

At times we may be working from home (and not the office), and may not be present in person to attend any faxes. Please scan any items and send as a PDF by email instead.

A Message from AdCanada Media Inc.

Throughout history, newspapers have been relied upon to provide in-depth, trusted and important information in times of crisis. The current COVID-19 pandemic is no different. In fact, the need for vital information to be communicated uniformly and without prejudice is perhaps greater now than it has ever been. Community newspapers from coast to coast are on the front lines, keeping citizens of their communities updated on the latest developments directly affecting the lives of individuals living outside of the large media hubs. In thousands of communities across Canada, people young and old are relying on community newspapers to keep them informed. Crisis challenges us all to overcome obstacles and roadblocks. As a media agency specializing in connecting those with a message to their target communities through the community's own newspaper, we are here to see to it that the biggest roadblock - time- does not prevent life-saving information from reaching those who need it most. If you or your organization requires assistance in pulling together a strategy for getting information into the hands of Canadians, please do not hesitate to contact us at or 

2022 will be the 103rd Anniversary of the Better Newspapers Competition in Manitoba! Contact us right now to become a Sponsor! 204-947-1691
