Ottawa Citizen

About Us

With a bold transformation and a complete reimagining of news media, the Ottawa Citizen has changed how it creates and delivers content to audiences. This new approach focuses primarily on local news and platform-driven storytelling to bring highly engaged audiences to our advertisers at exactly the right moment.

The Ottawa Citizen’s content reaches half a million residents of Canada’s capital each week. For nearly 170 years the Citizen has been the first choice for news and information keeping readers informed with in-depth analysis and context.

With revitalized products across all four platforms, readers will engage with stories differently, on different platforms, different times throughout the day.

In 2013, the Ottawa Citizen and Postmedia News were the winners of the World Press Freedom Award, the 2013 Hillman Prize in Journalism and the 2012 Michener Award as well as the National Newspaper Award in the political reporting category.
