Burlington Post Delivery to Condos and Apartments


I have heard from numerous citizens recently who live in apartment buildings and condominiums and want to ensure they continue to have access to The Burlington Post print edition.

We have spoken with Metroland Media, who owns & distributes this local newspaper, to get clarity on what is happening. Due to the financial pressures of the print media business in today’s highly competitive and digital environment, they have reduced the free print newspaper quantities they supply to apartments and condos, and they are working with building managers to understand needs. They will continue to adjust quantities based on balancing feedback from readers and advertisers with their business capabilities.

For residents who wish to receive their own addressed copy, please reach out to them directly to provide your subscription information to You can also follow their stories online at or for timely access to the same local news and community content in real-time.

  1. Thank you for the clarity. Maybe I should share with you my dealings with Metroland. They do not always deliver to the tourist office, because I have physically gone up to their offices and picked up The Post for my building and the tourist office. Last week for the second time I asked if I could speak to someone about the situation. If it meant payment or delivery, whatever, just let us know. A lot of people still actually like reading a print and not logging on-line. If there is a problem, let us know. The person at the desk called someone, who didn’t come out to speak to me, but phoned through to me on the lobby phone. They advised the corporation had decided to cut out certain areas. I asked the reason…. they didn’t know. I asked if I could maybe write to someone to see what could be done, and I was told the decision had already been made.

    My take: This has been going on for months. I’m not the only one who has approached them. I had a feeling it may have been financial, but no one at Metroland wanted to talk. I’m quite sure numerous condos would not have a problem paying, if someone discussed it. They could write an article in the paper explaining the situation. Not simply stop supplying to certain areas which have been benefiting from the paper for more years than I can remember. I can’t believe that the Mayor had to get involved. I’ll read the Hamilton Spec.

  2. I believe Metroland received part of the Federal Gonernment subsidies to the print media. As a community paper Metromedia should restore the level of free issues. My grain of salt!

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful. Got an idea or comment you want to share privately? Please, get in touch:
