Tell Your Story


You want your message to be picked up by the media, and the competition for print space is tight. The BC & Yukon Community News Media Association offers a press release distribution service, which can get your message out to about 100 community newspapers across the province with just one email!

Benefits of using our service

  • Reach editors all over BC and the Yukon in one shot. Your release will be distributed to newspapers in the larger urban centres like Burnaby and Victoria, as well as to smaller towns like Kitimat and Nelson.
  • Many newspaper editors prefer to receive press releases in electronic format.
  • We are always in touch with our members, so you don’t have to worry about trying to keep a database up-to-date.
  • While we can never guarantee that your press release will be used by our member newspapers, it will have the BC and Yukon Community News Media Association name attached to it, and is more likely to be noticed.


  • $99 + GST
  • Price includes one logo (please send logo separately as a .jpg file)
  • $25 extra charge for each additional logo or photo
