The National Ethnic Press and Media Council of Canada (NEPMCC) opened its 2019 Exhibtit at the CNE, August 18, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, led by Thomas Saras, President and CEO.

The opening was graced by NEPMCC officers and members, politicians, CNE officials and other guests. A reception followed the official ceremonies.

The Exhibit, a yearly presence in the CNE, displays a variety of ethnic newspapers produced by hundreds of publishers all over the country. Its huge and colourful booth which attracts a lot of guests, is strategically located at the CNE’s International Pavillion (beside the International Stage where cultural performances are held.)
