There is a new addition to the Toronto Star Newspaper Group (TSNG), and this time around it’s on the second floor.

The Toronto Star has quietly expanded its reach and added a new department to its fold, bringing with it new challenges and opportunities for residents, businesses, and all those who rely on the city’s journalism for important breaking news stories.

So what is the new department called? You might guess it from the address, but no, it’s actually the Toronto Star Newspaper Group (TSNG). The department is responsible for covering local news including crime, sports, education, politics, and business. It is part of the TSNG, which also owns the National Post and the Metro Star.

Breaking News

Like all newspapers, the Toronto Star is always looking for the next big breaking news story. When a big story breaks, it naturally makes the news. This is important to keep in mind when considering where to find the Toronto Star. While you can find the standard Tuesday-Friday editions at most local newsstands, once you know where to look you will also find the Saturday Review magazine. On Saturdays, you will find the weekly edition of the Toronto Star Newspaper Group (TSNG).

The TSNG weekly brings with it a host of exclusive offers and digital content. Not only does it have all the local news coverage you could want, but it also has lots of space to fill with special reports and feature stories. It also includes a lot of business information that might be of interest to readers.


If there is one place you will always find out what is going on in Toronto politics it is the Toronto Star. The Star has always been at the forefront of covering Toronto politics and has, since its inception, grown to become the largest news organization in Canada. More recently, the Star has invested heavily in new technology and innovative ways to cover the latest news and stories.

In the last year or so, the Star has added dozens of new journalists and political columnists, all of whom are focused on bringing readers the best possible coverage of Toronto’s political scene. While the city has a long way to go before it matches the size and influence of, say, the Washington Post, the Star is certainly committed to keeping its readers well-informed about local, national, and international politics.
