The Press Gallery will distribute releases, notices, press kits or any other documents it receives to its members.
If you wish to send out a release or other information to members of the Press Gallery, please note the following:
The Press Gallery will accept press releases, notices and other material via
e-mail. We, in turn, will re-distribute the information to our members via our
e-mail distribution lists. If you wish to send your material in this fashion, you must contact us so that we can supply you with the list of e-mail addresses that you must send your material to in order for it be re-distributed to our members.
The Press Gallery has two offices, one in Centre Block and one in the National Press Building. Sufficient copies must be sent to cover both locations.
