To provide insightful and relevant local news and information to our community whenever and however they want it.
It all began at the back of the Shamrock Fruit Store in 1903. Amid apple crates and potato sacks, three enterprising newsmen produced the first edition of the Edmonton Journal on November 11, 1903. Their mission was simple: to provide relevant and reliable news and information to the Edmonton community.
A century later, our focus on the community still beats at the heart of all we do, and is the lifeblood of our organization. We remain Edmonton's most trusted voice, providing a professional perspective on news, business, sports and entertainment that's read by more northern Albertans than any other daily newspaper. Our commitment to the community is evidenced not only in our local news and information coverage, but also in our long-standing involvement with many local charitable organizations such as the United Way Alberta Capital Region, the Edmonton Food Bank, and many others.
The Edmonton Journal is a proud sponsor of several major events in the community including the Running Room Indoor Games, the Edmonton International Fringe Festival, the Canadian Country Music Awards and the Festival of Trees.
As part of our commitment to being a socially responsible member of the community, The Edmonton Journal pursues and adheres to, environmentally sound and sustainable best practices. The Edmonton Journal is committed to protecting our environment for future generations, and is proactively taking measures to ensure that our business processes have a minimal impact on our environment.
Our dedication to provide news and information to the community remained steadfast throughout the last century, and will endure into the new century and beyond. Although our commitment to our core mission is unchanging, what is changing is how we are providing this news and information to our readers. We strive to deliver our mission of relevant and reliable news to our readers whenever and however they want. This includes traditional print medium along with the many new and dynamic media our readers demand. Our community is growing and evolving, and we are growing and evolving along with it while fulfilling our original mission created over 100 years ago.
