Metroland to shutter print editions

Posted: 2023-09-15 13:17:02 By: thebay

Metroland Media says it getting out of print newspapers at its community newspapers including in Muskoka.  It says it will also abandon the flyer business as part of a restructuring plan as it files for protection under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act.

This will result in the loss of 605 positions, or almost 60% of the company's overall staff.

Metroland claims the decision is the result of unsustainable financial losses caused by shifting consumer and advertiser choices.

Their news and features will transition to a digital-only model, according to the plan.
