The News is honored to be recognized by the Canadian Community Newspaper Association for our creativity, marketing acumen and skill with these national awards,” said Lisa Prophet, publisher. “We strive to reflect the communities we serve and the businesses we work with and this is a great example of the team at The News being recognized for their daily goals. “

Combined, the two associations represent over 830 daily, weekly, and community newspapers in every province and territory in Canada.
