Truth. Clarity. Community.

It’s what we do.

For more than a century, the Red Deer Advocate has provided trusted news and informative content for locals to enjoy and stay up to date.

We have just over 14,000 print readers per issue and are viewed on more than 500,000 computer or mobile screens every month, bringing the most need-to-know local news to community members.

Whether it’s breaking news, community information, entertainment, opinion or local sports, we pride ourselves in bringing the most relevant news to our readers.

Sparking dinnertime conversations.

Sparking action.

Sparking change and celebration.

On Monday, we’re launching a reinvigorated subscription program – offering subscribers more exclusive content and premium benefits for no additional cost. As a valued subscriber, these updates ensure readers continue receiving the print product as they always have.

The core of local journalism goes beyond simply chronicling all Red Deer has been and all that it will become – it’s asking the tough questions along the way. We’re proud that we hold community leaders accountable to the people we serve.

The Red Deer Advocate has been here when it matters most, especially when the news gets tough, filtering through the noise to bring you the raw and the real.

And through it all, our loyal print subscribers have supported the important journalism we are proud to do in the community.

“Local journalism is essential to the democratic process and a proven element of community social health. It’s also one of the foundations to building inclusive communities that allow differing viewpoints to be heard,” said Daria Zmiyisky, Red Deer Advocate publisher and president of Black Press Media’s Prairie division.

“The value-added subscription program is a way for readers to support their local community news media and ensure the stories that help build a better tomorrow are told today.”

Added benefits subscribers now have access to include exclusive newsletters delivered right to their inbox, community forums to connect with the news team, unlimited access to our provincial news website, as well as puzzles, crosswords and premium contests.

In addition to local content, subscribers will also be able to enjoy breaking news from around the province and across Canada, brought to readers by one of the largest networks of journalists in North America.

We recognize the importance and direct impact of breaking news to our fellow community members.

Stories that share important public safety information will always be accessible to all readers.

“What we do requires trust from the community. As readers, you put your faith in us every day to bring you the latest, most important information about our city and our region. We take that responsibility very seriously and hope you continue to believe in us,” said Byron Hackett, Red Deer Advocate Managing Editor.
