History

Canadian University Press is a national, non-profit co-operative that was formed in 1938. Their mandate is to unite, strengthen and support the Canadian student press. It is owned and operated by student newspapers across Canada, and is a vehicle by which those newspapers exchange stories and ideas. Although once English only, it is now a bilingual organization: its French language branch is Presse universitaire canadienne. It provides a news wire service comprised of original content (contributed by member papers and CUP staff), a graphics exchange, a national advertising agency, resource material, a style guide, listservs, membership newsletters, and various employment, internship, mentorship and networking opportunities, as well as discounted conferences. Content is edited by the national bureau chief, and is then made available for publication in member papers. The annual conference also constitutes the annual general meeting.
Canadian University Press is divided into six regions: WRCUP (Western, including B.C. and the Yukon); PNCUP (Prairies and Northern, including Alberta, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Saskatchewan); ORCUP (Ontario); CUPbeq (Quebec); ARCUP (Atlantic, including New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and P.E.I.); and PUC (Presse universitaire canadienne, including all French language members, regardless of geography).
