The Puslinch Pioneer relies on advertising sales to offset the costs of publishing. The size of the paper, for example, is determined by the number of pages of advertising sold.

Our publication is delivered directly to 3,200+ households as well as being available within the community.   It is a great way for you to reach out to market and sell your product or service. Residents tend to keep the paper so that when they are looking for something specific, they have the information readily at hand.

Not only do we sell advertising space, but we can include your flyer (up to three per issue).

If you have questions contact Dianne Churcher.
