The Province

Vancouver, Canada

The Province is a daily, tabloid format newspaper published in British Columbia by Postmedia Network Canada Corp. It has been a daily newspaper since 1898.

In 1923, the Southam family bought The Province. By 1945 the paper’s printers went out on strike. The Province had been the best selling newspaper in Vancouver, ahead of The Vancouver Sun and News Herald. As a result of the six-week strike, it lost significant market share, at one point falling to third place. In 1957, The Province and The Vancouver Sun were sold to Pacific Press Limited, which was jointly owned by both newspaper companies.
