About Calgary Monitor

Your gateway to the Canadian Rockies

A continually-updating online news service for Calgary, Alberta’s largest city and Canada’s third biggest municipality.

Calgary Monitor beams local news 24 hours a day with a particular focus on the Calgary-Edmonton Corridor, a metropolitan area with a population now in excess of 1.4 million.

Home to the headquarters of some of the largest national and international companies, Calgary is a hub for an ever-expanding financial and tech sector industrial base.

Calgary Monitor, launched and operated by the Midwest Radio Network, supplements local news coverage with stories from around Alberta, Canada and the Globe.

Drawing content primarily, but not exclusively from the Big News Network news agency, the online publication provides an extensive coverage of international business.

Title: Calgary Monitor


Mission: Calgary Monitor was conceived in September 2002 to provide up-to-the minute local news, together with national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Calgary Monitor, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of the city, and the Calgary-Edmonton Corridor. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.

Calgary Monitor and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network, headquartered at Canada House in Sydney.

Associated sites include: Canada Standard | BC Post | Toronto Telegraph | Vancouver Star
