National Newspaper Week and Carrier Day Resources

September 17, 2014

The 74th annual National Newspaper Week (NNW) will take place from October 5-11, 2014. This week-long celebration recognizes the important role that newspapers play in the lives of communities large and small around the world. The theme of this year’s event is “Newspapers: The Foundation of Vibrant Communities”

NNW also includes Newspaper Carrier Day which will take place on Saturday, October 11. This special day is designed to honour the hard-working men and women who make a vital contribution to the industry.

In order to help promote National Newspaper Week and Carrier Day, Newspaper Association Managers and Newspapers Canada have produced a package of free materials for newspapers to use in their own publications.

Newspapers Canada encourages our CNA and CCNA members to download and publish these materials in an effort to promote the enduring strength of the newspaper industry during this week-long celebration.

The National Newspaper Week resource kit—which includes a variety of editorial cartoons, puzzles, editorials and more—is available at

Newspapers Canada is pleased to provide member newspapers with a series of free-for-use promotional ads available in in both French and English.
