Combined, the two associations represent over 830 daily, weekly, and community newspapers in every province and territory in Canada. The CNA and the CCNA are now co-managed by one CEO but remain governed by two separate Boards of Directors in order to preserve the uniqueness of the programs and services offered to each member.
