The Press Gallery will accept press releases, notices, press kits and other documents or material and re-distribute the information to its members.
Listed below are the guidelines to begin the distribution process:
If you wish to distribute your material to members of the Press Gallery by E-mail, you must contact us (email@example.com) so that we can process your request through proper channels (certain e-mail addresses will be provided to you for ease of communication.)
Following this procedure, your material will be re-distributed by firstname.lastname@example.org to our members via our e-mail distribution lists.
The Press Gallery has two offices, one in Centre Block and one in the National Press Building. If you wish to distribute hard copies, you must send enough to cover both locations.
For bilingual or unilingual documents, please send 40 copies to each location, for a total of 80 copies.
For separate English and French documents please send 30 English copies and 10 French copies to each location, for a total of 60 English copies and 20 French copies.
Adjustments are possible. Please contact the Gallery ahead of time to make the necessary arrangements.
Please note: All deliveries from outside the Parliamentary Precinct must be made to our office in the National Press Building. Deliveries from within the Parliamentary Precinct can be made directly to either office.
All documents for the national media are accepted and will be distributed shortly after delivery to our offices. We will also accept documents to be held under embargo, which will be secured until the agreed release time.
