Local News Map data reports

The Local News Map is a crowd-sourced resource that tracks what is happening to local newspapers, broadcast outlets and online/digital news sources in places across Canada. It displays information on the launch/closing of local news organizations along with service increases/reductions going back to 2008, which marked the beginning of a deep recession and a turning point for many previously profitable local news organizations. Map data are downloaded and analyzed in reports that are published every two months. Click on the links below to view the reports and access the latest data.
