Share Online Inc., operating as Sharenews.com, is the website of Share Newspaper, a weekly community newspaper which has served the Black and Caribbean community in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) of Ontario, Canada since April 9, 1978.

 

Share was founded by its publisher, Arnold A. Auguste, who came to Canada from his native Trinidad and Tobago in 1970 and began his journalism career as a columnist with a weekly publication in Toronto in 1972. He worked as a reporter while studying journalism at Ryerson Polytechnic Institute (now Ryerson University) and left that publication as managing editor in 1978 to start Share.
