TORONTO - The owner of Canada’s largest group of newspapers reports it had a $13.5-million profit in its fourth quarter ended Aug. 31, which it attributed to cost cutting and assistance from government wage subsidies.

Among the factors offsetting the revenue decline was money from a federal wage subsidy program that helps employers affected by a loss of business due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
