The Saskatchewan Weekly Newspapers Association was established in 1914. Our job is to offer a convenient and cost effective way to buy advertising, place classifieds or issue a press release to our member newspapers all across Saskatchewan and the North West Territories.

Throughout history, newspapers have been relied upon to provide in-depth, trusted and important information. Our 57 member newspapers not only reflect life in the communities they serve, they are a central part of Saskatchewan’s and the North West Territories’ unique lifestyle. Every week our member papers connect with over 500,000 readers across Saskatchewan.

Community newspapers from coast to coast work on the front lines to keep citizens of their communities updated on the latest developments directly affecting the lives of individuals living outside of the large media hubs. In thousands of communities across Canada, people young and old are relying on community newspapers to keep them informed.

The Saskatchewan Weekly Newspapers Association and its sales arm, AdCanada Media,  specialize in connecting those with a message to community newspapers across Saskatchewan. If you or your organization requires assistance in pulling together a strategy for getting information into the hands of rural Saskatchewan, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our mission is simple. SWNA can take you to every community in the province, conveniently and cost effectively. All it takes is one call to the SWNA office at 306.382.9683.
