The company that owns the Toronto Star said Tuesday it is laying off more than 50 people, mostly from its newsroom and tablet edition, amid increasing pressure from declining print advertising revenue.

Twenty-two employees, including 19 full-time workers in the Toronto Star newsroom, will be among those let go, said David Holland, Torstar's acting president and publisher, in a memo sent to staff.

Another 26 temporary staff working on Star Touch, the paper's tablet app that launched in September 2015, will depart the company over the next couple of months, Holland said.
