The Exeter Lakeshore Times-Advance is a weekly local newspaper, published in the town of Exeter, Ontario.[1] It serves the counties of Huron, Middlesex, and Lambton. It was established in 1873 as the Exeter Times-Advocate.[2]

The Exeter Times-Advocate was one of several Torstar-owned newspapers purchased by Postmedia in a transaction between the two companies which concluded on November 27, 2017.[3] The paper will continue to be published by Postmedia.[4] In 2018, the Exeter Times Advocate merged with the Grand Bend-based Lakeshore Advance to create the Exeter Lakeshore Times-Advance.[5]
