Local news— despite being a hot topic of debate across Canada— is a crucial part of the Canadian media landscape. Canadians depend on local and provincial news coverage for more than just traffic reports and the weather; local news conserves culture, drives conversation, and educates communities on topics often overlooked at the national level.
Following last year’s inaugural Digital Publishing Awards, the Best News Coverage award was split into two divisions: Local & Provincial and National & International.
