This summer marks CNW’s 56th year in business, an impressive amount of time for a brand to lead its industry, which CNW has done with unwavering consistency.

We can credit at least some of our success on a singular purpose: serving the Canadian market – and only the Canadian market. All these years, we have made it our business to dig deeply into this territory and understand it like no one else.

A while back we adopted the acronym CNW to work better for us day-to-day in a bilingual market, but many of you still know us as Canada Newswire. We think that makes all the sense in the world: CNW is Canada’s newswire company.

One of CNW’s longest-standing partners is TMX Group, which operates the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), and which has publicly endorsed CNW for the calibre of our newswire and financial webcast services. This important recognition speaks to our capabilities as a team and to our thorough understanding of Canadian compliance and market regulations.

If you’re a PR professional in Canada, you may have visited your first newsroom with a CNW account manager, or met your first journalist (in person) at a CNW Breakfast with the Media event. You have most certainly chatted with our News Centre at some point in your career, and have perhaps thanked someone there for spotting a typo in your news release.  (I know I have).

All along, CNW has been intricately connected with Canadian media, as trusted supplier of both material and general news releases, and multimedia content. We have always maintained strong relationships with newsrooms across the country and now we’re working with bloggers and influencers seeking content for their websites. We work hard on this – as hard as we work to authenticate and distribute quality, accurate content, and to provide exceptional service across product lines that help you create, distribute, analyze and monitor your communications.

We are proud to help Canadians tell their stories.

This is an exciting time to be in our industry and an important time to be Canadian. On behalf of our new parent company, Cision and everyone at CNW, I wish you a happy Canada Day as we celebrate our strengths together.
