The Glebe Report is the community newspaper of the Glebe, Glebe Annex and Dow’s Lake areas of Ottawa. Advertising in the paper gets your message out to a wide audience — both in our neighbourhood and across the National Capital Region — that’s not only local but also engaged with goings-on in the city.

Some 7,500 copies of each 36- to 44-page issue are distributed free of charge by volunteers to households across the areas we serve. Copies are available for pickup at 55 businesses in the Glebe and Old Ottawa South, as well as at the Glebe and Old Ottawa South (OOS) community centres, Brewer Park Pool, the Sunnyside Branch of the Ottawa Public Library and Carleton University’s Unicentre. Copies can also be found in newspaper boxes in various locations on Bank Street, both in the Glebe and in OOS. The boxes are shared with the OOS community newspaper, The Oscar.

The Glebe Report is published digitally at the same time as the print edition. We’re always available online, where you can also access the complete archive back to the first edition of June 1973. New issues are announced through our e-newsletter and social media (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).

Online ads are an effective way to feature time-sensitive events, real estate listings and general advertising. They appear both on our website and in our e-newsletter.

Advertising Policy and Guidelines

The policy and guidelines in the following section apply to all advertising content appearing in the Glebe Report’s print and digital publications, and on the website.

Advertising is independent of editorial decisions; the two realms remain separate and are not influenced by each other.

The Glebe Report does not endorse any product or service marked as an advertisement or promoted by a sponsor appearing in the Glebe Report’s print or digital publications, and on the website.

All advertising content must be clearly distinguishable from editorial content. The Glebe Report labels any advertising with the word “Advertisement” when it is necessary to differentiate between editorial content and advertising. “Advertisement” will appear in capital letters in a small font size and will be centred above the ad border.

Advertising is accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and is based on space availability.

There is no preferred positioning or placement of advertisements in the Glebe Report.

Payment by Interac e-transfer or cheque is required with submission of artwork for first-time advertisers for the first three insertions or with each insertion for infrequent advertisers. Payment by credit card is not accepted.

It is the responsibility of the advertiser to ensure their artwork is prepared to the Glebe Report’s artwork specifications and is print ready. Please refer to the advertising rates click here and the Glebe Report’s artwork specifications.

Advertisements will not be accepted if they are considered defamatory or offensive to the shared values of the community.

The Glebe Report does not accept inserts or flyers other than the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group (GNAG) program booklet.
