The Timmins Daily Press is a newspaper in Timmins, Ontario, which publishes six days a week. It is notable as the first paper bought by press baron Roy Thomson, who would eventually own more than 200 newspapers including The Times (London). In something of a strange twist of fate, the paper was later sold to Hollinger, a company founded by Noah Timmins, after whom the city of Timmins is named.

The Daily Press is now owned by Quebecor through its Osprey Media division. Osprey bought the Daily Press from Hollinger in 2001.

The Daily Press had an average daily circulation of 6,001 in the six-month period ending in March 2008, down from 9,522 in September 2005.[1]
