The Gleaner - Next 5 years
The Gleaner is celebrating its first 5 years since its relaunch in June 2019 as a community-owned non-profit organization titled the Chateauguay Valley Community Information Services (CVCIS) which has a mandate to inform the population in the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent and neighbouring communities.

The next 5 years will be just as challenging as the first, with rising costs, competition for revenue from the tech giants and declining subscription base. CVCIS is undertaking a business planning process to ensure that The Gleaner is viable for the future, please take a few minutes (just 10 questions!) to provide us with your thoughts on the best way for The Gleaner to continue producing quality, local news for the next 5 years.
