The parent of The Toronto Star and more than three dozen newspapers in Canada has reached a deal to distribute Wall Street Journal content in the country.

Starting Tuesday, Torstar daily newspapers and websites across the country will begin publishing a limited sample of articles from The Journal.

Also starting Tuesday, the Toronto Star, Torstar’s flagship newspaper, will launch Star Business Journal, a major new initiative with both print and online editions featuring articles on business, the economy, technology and markets from The Journal.

“The world of business is becoming increasingly global and this exclusive partnership with The Wall Street Journal offers our customers, particularly aspiring and established business leaders, a unique and informative perspective on news they can use,” said John Boynton, president of Torstar Corp. and publisher of the Toronto Star.

The print edition of Star Business Journal will carry content from The Journal every day except Sunday, with extra coverage every Wednesday.

Customers will also be offered greater access every day to a larger, more wide-ranging package of Journal articles, including access to curated newsletters as part of a digital subscription package.
