Corriere Canadese ("The Canadian Courier") is an Italian-language daily newspaper published in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The publication is distributed exclusively in Ontario and Quebec, primarily throughout the Greater Toronto and the Greater Montreal areas.[1]

Corriere Canadese was founded on 2 June 1954 (Republic Day)[2] by Dan Iannuzzi, and since 2001 was owned by Multimedia Nova Corporation and published by Italmedia. In 1995, it launched Tandem, an English-language, weekend edition of Corriere Canadese targeting children of Italian immigrants.[1]

The newspaper suspended publication in May 2013[3] blaming a 2010 cut in subsidies by the Italian government for its financial difficulty. In July, a group of Italo-Canadian entrepreneurs acquired the assets of Corriere Canadese and Tandem. The former federal minister Joe Volpe is the new publisher, Francesco Veronesi the new editor in chief.
