The Centretown BUZZ is delivered every month to homes and businesses in the neighbourhood by a dedicated team of volunteers.

We’re always looking for extra help, and delivering newspapers is an excellent way to exercise and get fresh air – and to get to know your neighbours and neighbourhood a little bit better.

You can also help by ensuring that The BUZZ is available in your apartment or condominium.

Here’s some frequently asked questions, including how to sign up.


1. What does a deliverer do?

Each deliverer is assigned a paper route, provided with a number of papers and asked to insert a paper in each residential mailbox or mail slot.

2. How much time is required?

Depending on the size of your route, it may take from 30 minutes to an hour.

3. How often does this happen?

Once a month after the paper is published. The BUZZ‘s publication schedule for this year is on the right side of this page, under the Featured Article section.

4. How do I get a paper route?

Email, with your name, address, and phone number. If that’s not possible, leave a phone message at 613-565-6012 extension 3.

5. How do I receive your newspapers for delivery?

The papers will be dropped off at your house or building soon after the paper is published each month (you do not have to go anywhere to pick them up).

6. When do I make my deliveries?

If possible, within 48 hours of receiving them.

7. What if I’m unable to do my delivery route one month?

Contact Archie Campbell ( and he’ll ensure that your route is done for you that month.

8. How can I help if I live in a condo or apartment?

You can ensure that The BUZZ is available in your building, in the mailroom or other newspaper/flyer distribution location. Email, with your name, address, and phone number so we can arrange to get you copies of the paper.

And thank you very much for helping the BUZZ get delivered to its eager readers!
