Publishers viewpoint March 2023 By Chase


By Chase

Well, we are only a few weeks away from the arrival of Spring. Winter seems to be holding on tightly in some areas of the province. The construction industry is counting the days until the warmer weather arrives and sites start to pick up any lost time with the arrival of better weather.

Beyond inflation, rising costs for materials and bad weather, how is your company doing? The season of conferences and industry retreats will be taking a back-seat soon, while the focus returns to project delivery. What new projects are you starting this Spring or wrapping up with substantial completion?

Once some of the structure is up you can send in photos along with any renderings for coverage in our news section. We will run the photos with a brief write up and include details on the project team.

This article will run for free and your trades are not bothered to advertise. If you are reaching substantial performance and have not advertised with the Ontario Construction News daily newspaper before, you can test drive our leading Certificate of Substantial Performance (CSP) publishing service for free. You’ll see the quick turn around and attention to details, with the opportunity to verify a proof of your notice before it is published.

If you are hosting any events this Spring as an association or member of the construction industry you can send details for editorial review and potential publicity in the daily news section. As a follow up to the event, you can submit photos the day after and details on any awards presented, board appointments/elections and contributions to charity for coverage as well.

If your event is planned later in the year you can reach out to me to help promote it or even review media sponsorship opportunities. Send me an email with your event details or questions about promoting it to or call direct (905) 341-8686.

Chase is the director of marketing and client relations for the Construction News and Report Group as well as the associate publisher for the Ontario Construction Report, the daily digital Ontario Construction News, as well as several US magazines. These publications reach tens of thousands of readers across Canada and the United States.
