CNW Official Newswire of Quebec Community Newspapers Association



    TORONTO, June 26 /CNW/ - CNW Group, Canada's largest news and information
distribution service for professional communicators, today announced it is the
"official newswire" of Quebec Community Newspapers Association (QCNA).
    The Quebec Community Newspapers Association is dedicated to the
professional and economic development of English community newspapers and
their enterprises serving minority communities in Quebec.
    "We're pleased to have CNW Group be the official newswire for the Quebec
Community Newspaper Association. Their reputation for having the greatest
reach into English, French and bilingual newsrooms across Canada means that
our news will reach the news media," said Greg Duncan, Executive Director,
QCNA.
    "CNW is the leading source of full-text news in Canada since 1960. More
than 80 per cent of Canada's media companies use CNW to disseminate their own
corporate information, a fact that speaks not only to our credibility and
reliability in the news distribution business, but also to the long-standing
relationships CNW has built up over the years with Canada's journalism and
media organizations," said David Milliken, Senior Vice President, Media
Relations.

    About QCNA

    The Quebec Community Newspaper Association's English and bilingual
publications distribute weekly, monthly, biweekly and daily to some 700,000
readers across the province. These publications serve an exclusive English and
bilingual readership in their communities through their focus on relevant
local news and high editorial-to-advertising ratio. The results from ComBase,
Canada's most comprehensive media study, show that QCNA newspapers are
embraced by Quebec's unique population more than any other medium in every
market they serve. In fact, three out of five English-speaking residents read
their local community newspaper. The research shows that these same readers
possess a high level of purchasing power and as such, are the ideal target
demographic for advertisers. Our member publications cover communities that
are often hard to reach. Whether ethnic, religious, senior, agricultural,
educational, aboriginal or official language minority, our publications
effectively provide non-duplicating coverage in both rural and urban markets
throughout Quebec.
