The Edmonton Sun is a daily newspaper and news website published in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is owned by Postmedia following its 2015 acquisition of Sun Media from Quebecor.

It began publishing in 1978 and shares many characteristics with Sun Media's other tabloids, including an emphasis on local news stories, its conservative editorial stance, extensive sports coverage, and a daily Sunshine Girl. Once each year, the Edmonton Sun prints a special swimsuit edition. Around Christmas time, they print a holiday lingerie edition.

Circulation[edit]

The Edmonton Sun has seen like most Canadian daily newspapers a decline in circulation. Its total circulation dropped by 34 percent to 37,649 copies daily from 2009 to 2015.[2]
