The Pipestone Flyer is a member of  Alberta Weekly Newspapers Association

    Alberta's community newspapers reflect the images, thoughts and everyday happenings of the communities they serve. While these communities may vary in size, from tiny, isolated locations to bustling suburban centres, they share one important feature – a strong weekly newspaper. Today there are over 120 member newspapers throughout Alberta and the Northwest Territories. They boast a combined circulation of 900,460. The smallest newspaper circulates 443 copies each week; the largest – 127,593. We are part of a Canada-wide network of community newspapers through the Canadian Community Newspapers Association (CCNA). Together with six other provincial associations, we represent nearly 650 newspapers.
