The REMI Network is a finalist for the 2023 Canadian Online Publishing Awards (COPAs) in two business reporting categories. This year marks a decade since MediaEdge Communications launched its online news and information site in 2013, and the REMI Network has garnered a COPA nomination every year since then for its coverage of the Canadian commercial real estate, facilities management, construction and building design sectors.
“The world is becoming increasingly complex, while reliable, professionally driven news sources are becoming increasingly scarcer. The REMI Network has a mandate to uncover and highlight industry-specific issues, and provide context about how they affect both our readers and the broader economy,” says Sean Foley, group publisher for the REMI Network. “Commercial real estate is a major economic contributor with an important role to play in an evolving Canadian society. We are proud to hammer home that message and invigorated by the ongoing challenge of keeping pace with rapidly changing times.”
Aligning with that mission, this year the REMI Network has received COPA nominations in: the Products category for a piece about the Canadian government’s proposed phase-out of fluorescent and metal halide lighting; and the Multicultural/diversity category for a piece about accessible public bathroom facilities.
COPA winners for 2023 will be announced in February 2024.
