Sun Media cuts 200 more Canadian newspaper jobs, total cuts at 1,000

OTTAWA -- Canada's Sun Media Corporation announced Wednesday the elimination of 200 jobs at its newspapers across the nation, including 50 editorial positions.

The cuts are part of an ongoing restructuring “at a time of profound, unprecedented changes in the print media industry driven largely by the digital revolution,” the company said in a statement.

Canada's largest media union, the Communications Workers of America Canada, blasted this third round of layoffs in a year, bringing the total Sun Media jobs cut to more than 1,000.

Sun Media is Canada's largest newspaper publisher, operating 36 paid-circulation daily newspapers and six free dailies in nine of Canada's 10 largest urban markets, as well as almost 200 community newspapers, shopping guides and specialty publications.
