The Wire Report is the leading news service covering Canada's rapidly converging telecom and media sectors.
Our business news service dedicates its pages to the most important stories affecting these sectors and provides timely, exclusive coverage of business, technology, regulatory and policy developments for decision makers, policy analysts, consultants, regulatory and legal staff, financial analysts, news media and academics across the country.
Since the launch of The Wire Report at the start of 2010, this premium, online news service has quickly become the most authoritative and respected in its niche.
The Wire Report digs into important business, technology and competition issues. With an Ottawa office steps away from Parliament Hill and just across the river from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, we also keep a keen eye on regulatory developments at the CRTC, the Copyright Board, the Federal Court and Federal Court of Appeal, Industry Canada’s spectrum management branch, Canadian Heritage, and the House of Commons and Senate.
Our editorial team covers daily news but also conducts original, independent reporting on regulatory documents, data, interviews, and other sources. This leads to news stories that routinely scoop our competitors.
The Wire Report's website represents the largest and only dedicated archive of its kind in Canada, with a searchable collection of news reports from 2000 to today.
