Scope and content

On March 5, 1976 the first City of Edmonton Employee Publication was released by the Public Relations Department as a means of communication between all City of Edmonton employees. It provided information on what was happening in the different departments; topics of general interest; and on personal events such as births, marriages, retirements, and deaths. Contents were solicited from all City employees and then selected by the editor H. L. Pawson (also the Public Relations Director).

Between July 1976 and December 1983, the publication was called Mainstream. Starting in January, 1984, the publication was changed in reaction to the economic downturn. Now called Ministream, it was smaller (and cheaper to produce), and came out bi-weekly rather than only ten times a year. Ministream provided factual reports of major events in Civic life with a focus on how they affected employees, but also included cartoons, photographs, guest editorials, benefits updates, and a classified section. Ministream also began running articles that dealt with social issues affecting employees, such as domestic violence, HIV and AIDS, and famine overseas.

January 18, 1991 was the debut issue of City LINK, which replaced Ministream. Similarly, City LINK was a timely, cost-effective news service for employees. City LINK was bi-weekly until September 1995, when it became a monthly publication.

In February 2014 greatcitynews quietly replaced City LINK. greatcitynews was distributed monthly and provided news on civic plans, policies and programs; corporate and individual work-related achievements, and employee learning and development, benefits, health, safety, and fitness. The last print issue of greatcitynews was published December 2015, after which time it was only available electronically.

This series contains copies of Mainstream, Ministream, City LINK, and greatcitynews.
