Mission statement[edit]

Founded in 1862 in Saint John, the Telegraph-Journal is Saint John's daily newspaper, but also New Brunswick's provincial newspaper. The Telegraph-Journal is the forum for all New Brunswickers to discuss, understand, and debate the big issues. The goal of the newspaper is to enlarge the debate, find consensus - and drive the vision of the province. In short, our mission is to make New Brunswick better informed. Saint John, the province's oldest and largest city, is home to many of the regions largest corporations, and is poised to become the industrial engine for the province. As such, Saint John is a logical home for the provincial newspaper. Each day, the interests of the greater Saint John community and the province are balanced within our pages. The Telegraph-Journal is about big ideas - for the province, for Saint John, and for your business."
