Metro Halifax is celebrating its first birthday!
On Feb. 14, 2008, we launched your free daily newspaper in the HRM. The launch of the Halifax edition made Metro a true coast-to-coast newspaper in Canada. Metro publishes in print and on the web in Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.
We’re also part of the Metro International family, with readers in 100 major cities and 22 countries around the world.
The response to the Metro format in Halifax has been nothing short of phenomenal, and we have you, our readers, to thank for it. The demand has been so great that last September we increased our circulation by 20 per cent to 30,000 copies.
Starting March 2, we will be adding another seven per cent, taking our circulation to 32,000 copies.
Metro’s success is built on effectively serving both sets of customers, readers and advertisers. Our readers love the concise, well-written format of a newspaper that has a complete news package with a strong local component.
Our advertisers are eager to reach the audience we deliver: the young, active, well-educated, urban Canadian.
On behalf of everyone at Metro Canada I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making Metro Halifax part of your daily routine.
