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
