Apple expands local Apple News to Toronto, Montreal
Apple News and Apple News+ have been updated for Canada, and now Toronto and Montreal get curated local news alongside the regular national reports.
First launched in 2020, local news has been slowly added to selected US cities. Now it is at least beginning to roll out for Toronto and Montreal.
Apple News' curated local news experience is now available in Canada, starting with:— Rene Ritchie (@reneritchie) February 24, 2022

How do you like it?
As first spotted by Rene Ritchie, Apple News is now offering a dedicated local page for each of the two cities. At time of writing, only Toronto's page is populated with news stories, however.
When fully rolled out, both Toronto and Montreal will present a front page of News & Politics. There are also curated entries under the categories of Sports, Arts & Events, Business & Real Estate, and Food & Drink.
By default, Toronto's curated pages appear to be presented in English. The as-yet empty Montreal edition features category headings in French.
