Press Releases / Media Advisory Service


If you have an Announcement, an Event that you would like everyone to know about, or if something has been cancelled, postponed, or there have been some changes in your business operations, a press release might be a great place to start with getting that messaging out. We promise to place the information in the right hands, however our member papers have full editorial control, and publish as they decide.

If you would like to guarantee that your message is published and seen by all of our 368,000+ homes in Manitoba, then perhaps you should consider a Classified Ad at this time, as Classified Ads are guaranteed to run in all of our member papers, once approved here in the office. If we can offer you a quote, please let us know.
