The QCT is on the short list (top 3) in 5 categories.

Each year, the Quebec Community Newspaper Association (QCNA) holds a competition among its members in many different categories.


The Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph is on the short list (one of three nominees) in the upcoming Better Newspaper Awards. The first-, second- and third-place winners will be announced at the 34th Annual Awards ceremony, to be held at the Manoir Saint-Sauveur in Saint-Sauveur, Quebec, on June 6, 2014.


The categories in which the QCT and its journalists have been nominated are:

The Quebec Community Newspapers Association is as unique as the members it serves. Its 33 English and bilingual publications are distributed weekly, monthly, bi-weekly or daily, reaching some 800,000 readers across the province. These publications serve an exclusive English and bilingual readership in their communities through their focus on relevant local news and high editorial-to-advertising ratio.


The results from ComBase, Canada's most comprehensive media study, show that QCNA newspapers are embraced by Quebec's minority population more than any other medium in every market they serve. In fact, three out of five English-speaking residents read their local community newspaper. The research shows that these same readers possess a high level of purchasing power and as such, are the ideal target demographic for advertisers.


The QCNA’s member publications cover communities that are often hard to reach. Read by ethnic, religious, senior, agricultural, educational, aboriginal and official-language minorities, these publications effectively provide non-duplicating coverage in both rural and urban markets throughout the province.
