The Greek Press

A Greek Canadian Newspaper established in 1982 at Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Greek Press is a bilingual Greek Canadian Newspaper in print and electronic form published weekly in Toronto, Ontario Canada. The paper version available as a pdf in the Archives section and dates back to 2006.

The Greek Press in its current form owes its existence to the commitment and love for journalism of the late Mr Constantine Kranias, an entrepreneur originally from N. Michaniona, Macedonia Greece. Mr Kranias’ love and dedication for a strong representation of Greek Canadians and more specifically the Greek Community of Toronto in Canadian life has been a life achievement for both Editor and his family.

The Greek Press has a mandate to present the life and achievements of a vibrant and strong Greek Canadian community in the Great Toronto Area, while keeping up with news and editorials that concern the modern bi-cultural, bilingual and thinking reader of today’s connected world. Modern community media should therefore cater to the diverse needs of culturally – aware citizens (“netizens”), by balancing the need for objective information with the stability of cultural values and enforcing cultural identity for conscious readers. In this sense, both the print and electronic versions of The Greek Press are complimentary to each other and have successfully taken up on the role of linking such readers to sources of knowledge.

The Greek Press abides by the ethics and conventions of community-based journalism, which dictate that all articles, news, opinions, etc are the property of their respective signing authors. For views expressed other than the editorial team, the newspaper bears no liability as expressed in the Ethics in Canadian Journalism and the Greek Association of Editors of Athens (ΕΣΗΕΑ).
