Editorial articles & custom writing services to engage audiences


Build a loyal audience with professionally written, informative & insightful articles that get read & shared.

The Canadian Press provides well-written, compelling stories in English and French with:

  • Licensed editorial articles from 180-plus CP journalists across the country and from over 5,000 world-class publishers via our partner NewsCred. We grant copyright permission to use articles in full on your digital, broadcast and print properties from CP and sources such as The Associated Press, the Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star, Forbes and more.
  • Custom articles from our network of freelance copywriters, vetted by editors in our commercial division. Clients hire us to write and edit original articles specific to their brand and brief, trusting our expertise in telling stories that resonate.

How are licensed articles different than custom articles, and what's the best mix for you?

Understanding the benefits of licensed articles versus custom articles helps determine the best mix for your needs.

  • Licensed articles bring credibility to your brand, and audiences tend to share content from trusted, well-known sources such as CP that has been telling Canada's story for 100 years.
  • Custom articles convey your brand message and voice and are for your exclusive use. Publishing unique, valuable content improves your SEO.
  • Licensed articles help you publish more frequently, at a fraction of the cost of producing it all from scratch since the content is already created and ready to use.
