As a significant media outlet we have the opportunity and the responsibility to make our mark on the communities that we represent.

Canstar Community News Limited was created in July of 2004 following the purchase of Winnipeg’s community weekly papers and distribution operations in Brandon and Thunder Bay, Ontario by the FP Newspapers Income Fund.

Canstar is a relatively new company in the process of building a very dynamic enterprise. Canstar, is on the path to becoming a leading newspaper and media distribution company.

Canstar publishes five weekly newspapers in Winnipeg – The Herald, The Lance, The Metro, The Sou’Wester and The Times – every Thursday, and The Headliner in the region west of Winnipeg every Friday. Canstar publishes UPTOWN Magazine every Thursday, an alternative weekly entertainment newspaper distributing 17,000 copies within the Winnipeg area. The Prime Times publishes every second Thursday, distributing 10,000 copies targeting mature individuals in the prime of life. These publications are leaders in their respective market niches.

In July, 2004 FPLP completed the acquisition of the community weekly newspapers and advertising distribution businesses from Transcontinental Media. The six weekly newspapers acquired are in the Winnipeg area, and the advertising delivery business operates in Winnipeg and Brandon, Manitoba and Thunder Bay, Ontario. Canstar Community News Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of FPLP, operates the acquired businesses. Results of these businesses are consolidated from the July 13, 2004 acquisition date.

In July, 2005 Canstar completed the acquisition of Rosebud Publications Ltd including UPTOWN Magazine and The Prime Times.
