The Sudbury Star serves Northern Ontario’s largest and most diverse city, with a population of more than 160,000. The Star’s reach extends far beyond the city, serving a total population of 250,000 in northeastern Ontario. Sudbury was founded on mining, with nickel being discovered here more than 100 years ago. The city remains the nickel capital of the word, with two large mining companies (Vale and Glencore), a host of junior miners and exploration firms, and dozens of mining supply and service companies. In all, the mining industry employs more than 15,000. However, Sudbury has also blossomed into a regional centre for government, education, health care and retail. The city boasts a bilingual university, an anglophone and francophone college, a school of medicine and a school of architecture. Four school boards are based here, as are federal, provincial and municipal government offices. The City of Greater Sudbury alone employs more than 1,700. Health Sciences North is northeastern Ontario’s regional referral centre for health care, with more than 3,000 employees. There are plans to build a children’s hospital. In addition, the city is a hotbed of research, with a number of mine research and development centres, and a dedicated health research institute. In the last decade, Sudbury has become a centre for film and TV productions, including the hit TV show Letterkenny. Sudbury is a hockey-mad city, with the OHL Sudbury Wolves, and enjoys a casino, two professional theatres and many art galleries and music halls. Plans are in the works to build an entertainment district that would include a new, 6,000-seat arena, casino, hotels, restaurants and related facilities. As for The Sudbury Star, it began in 1909 at a time when the mining industry began to take shape. William Edge Mason and other financial backers bought the paper and by the end of the First World War, the paper was flourishing. The W.E. Mason Estate sold the paper to local investors in 1950, who, in turn, sold it to Thomson Newspapers in 1955. The paper was sold to Conrad Black in 1996, Osprey in 2001, Sun Media in 2007 and Postmedia in 2015. The Star has operated from several locations over the years, but spent decades at 33 MacKenzie St. before moving to new offices at 128 Pine St. in 2013. The newspaper remains the largest circulation daily in northeastern Ontario and has a strong web and social media presence, among the leaders of newspapers its size in Postmedia. Its Facebook and Twitter following continues to grow. The Star publishes five days a week, Tuesdays to Saturdays, while the website is updated continually. The Star aims to strive a complete package of local news, opinion, sports, entertainment and life stories, in addition to the package provided by Postmedia. We aim to inform, entertain and to hold those in authority to account. In the past decade, The Star has received a number of newspaper award nominations, winning many awards in the process, making it the most honoured newspaper in Northern Ontario.
