The Carillon is a weekly newspaper based in Steinbach, Manitoba. It is published by Derksen Printers and focuses on local Southeastern Manitoba news.

The Carillon News made its debut on February 21, 1946 under the guidance of Eugene Derksen as editor and Bruno Derksen as advertising manager. George Derksen and Peter Rosenfeld were the typesetters. Ernest Neufeld, a brother-in-law, also became a partner and worked as a typesetter and sports reporter while his wife Irene (Eugene's sister) was the office manager. Both George Derksen and Ernest Neufeld moved to Saskatchewan later and became weekly newspaper publishers, owning the Estevan Mercury and Weyburn Review respectively. The Carillon went on to become the largest rural newspaper in the province, winning hundreds of awards both provincially and nationally.[citation needed]

In February 2011, the paper was purchased by the owner of the Winnipeg Free Press.[1]
