Newswest operates as a not-for-profit corporation and is published 12 times a year inside the pages of the Kitchissippi Times and runs as a separate entity.
Extra copies of the Kitchissippi Times are available at distribution points along Richmond Road (look for the yellow or blue newspaper boxes) and at various community hubs including Dovercourt Recreation Centre and the Hintonburg Community Centre.
Good things to know
The entire digital version of the newspaper is uploaded to kitchissippi.com by the Thursday of the publishing week. This means you can read a digital duplicate of the entire paper, ads and all, on your computer, tablet, and smartphone. You can read back issues right here. Most stories are uploaded individually to the site starting on the Thursday of the publishing week.
It’s important to note that some of the stories that don’t make it into the paper for space reasons may only be published on the website. If you follow us on Facebook and Twitter you’ll be notified when this happens.
The Kitchissippi Times Facebook page is a companion to both the printed paper and the website. It’s intended to be an easy way to stay on top of neighbourhood happenings, as well as a place to connect and discuss the issues of the day with other people in the community. Most events from the community calendar are published to the Facebook page as they approach.
The Kitchissippi Times also publishes an email newsletter. This is a great option for those who don’t receive the paper but still want to stay connected to the community. The e-newsletter is sent 2-3 times a month and offers news highlights as well as a link to the digital edition. Subscribers are often the first to find out about new contests too.
