History[edit]

The Guelph Tribune was founded on September 30, 1986 as the Royal Tribune, a once a week community newspaper. The paper was later renamed the Guelph Tribune and is now published twice a week since the mid-1990s. It focuses on all local news. The Tribune has had five owners and eight publishers since its start. It also employs many carriers to deliver the paper and advertisements with it.

Present[edit]

Torstar bought the newspaper from Southam in 2004 and is now part of the Metroland Media Group which also includes regional sister daily newspapers The Record (Kitchener, Cambridge and Waterloo) and the Guelph Mercury, as well as a group of weekly newspapers. The paper is published free of charge, it includes local news and is supported through donation drives and advertisements.
