Business Information Wire

Columbus, Ohio – The Canadian Press (CP), Canada's national news-gathering cooperative, announced in Toronto the availability of its Business Information Wire through the computer facilities of the CompuServe Information Service.

Since 1973, CP has provided the Business Information Wire (BIW) to Canada's major corporations, businesses and government agencies. Now, through CompuServe's videotex service, anyone from across North America can gain access to the BIW using virtually any terminal, microcomputer or communicating word processor.

News stories of interest to the business community are easily found under one or more of 18 different categories. A small monthly subscription fee allows users to read stories as they are filed on the news wire throughout the day. After 6 p.m. local time, that day's complete news report is available without additional charge to all CompuServe subscribers.

Canadian subscribers may gain access to the Business Information Wire on CompuServe through toll-free numbers in Toronto and Vancouver as well as through the TransCanada Telephone System's Datapac network across the country.
