The Haldimand Advocate

About Us

Locally owned, community driven. Since 1868.

The Haldimand Press is proud to serve the residents of Haldimand County. Our roots date back to 1868 and today, over 150 years later, we are the only locally owned weekly newspaper in Haldimand. The Haldimand Press was introduced in 1975 when The Haldimand Advocate, established in 1868, and The Hagersville Press, established in 1932, combined.

We are proud to recognize our Publisher Emeritus, Bob Hall. Under Bob’s stewardship and that of his father before him, the paper gained an outstanding reputation as a chronicle and as a great supporter of the Haldimand community.

When Bob decided to retire, it was important to him to keep the ownership local. He passed the torch to Jill Morison of Cayuga, who modernized and grew the paper to ensure it continued to thrive. Part of this growth included the hiring of local women Kaitlyn Clark and Jillian Taylor as reporters – both of whom would take on additional roles as their time progressed with the paper. Looking to step back herself, Jill asked Kaitlyn and Jillian to take over the business in 2017.

While many changes have occurred in the last 150+ years, The Haldimand Press continues to care about this community. Simply put, we believe in Haldimand.

Our paper’s mission is straight forward: to build and support the Haldimand community through excellent coverage of events and news in our local region.

The Haldimand Press is a growing and dynamic newspaper with a team that is focused on bringing its readership a superior newspaper filled with the content they care about.
