    TORONTO, June 10 /CNW/ - CNW Group, Canada's largest news and information
distribution service for professional communicators, today announced it is the
"official newswire" of the National Press Club of Canada.
    The National Press Club exists to provide a venue for journalists to meet
and a forum for news makers to speak on issues of the day. The foundation is
also active in supporting and promoting press freedom as well as in offering
scholarships to journalism students across Canada. The National Press Club
also recognizes excellence in Canadian journalism with the Charles Lynch
Award, while providing professional development for journalists in the form of
seminars on ethics and integrity.
    "Like the National Press Club of Canada itself, CNW Group is a space
where the news media come to meet the newsmakers. CNW Group's reputation for
being the place where the media go for their stories makes it the perfect
venue for us to distribute our news," said Tim Kane, Vice-President, National
Press Club of Canada Foundation.

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.
