After Eight Years, That's a Wrap


All good things must come to an end and after eight incredible years, we too are ending operations. Newfound News was founded under the belief that everyone should have access to local news regardless of where they live in our vast beautiful province.


News media as a whole is operating on razor-thin profit margins, and in our case, no longer sustainable.


Since Meta removed Canadian news content from their platforms, the amount of web traffic to our website has dropped nearly 80 per cent and while we have tried innovative methods to bring traffic to our website, we have not been able to attain the traffic, and in turn the ad revenue we once did.


So as a result, we are hitting pause on Newfound News as of Monday, April 8, 2024. It is our hope that the Online News Act is repealed. Should that occur, we may just make another attempt at bringing you the quality news you've come to trust.


In closing, thank you for all the support over the years. It has been an honour and privilege to tell your stories.


Thank you
