"The StarPhoenix" is a daily newspaper that serves Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada and is a part of CanWest News Service.

The "StarPhoenix" was first published as "The Phoenix" in October 1902. In 1909, it became a daily paper and, in 1910, was renamed the "Saskatoon Capital". The paper was sold and bought several times between its inception and the 1920s. By 1927, there were two daily papers in Saskatoon: the "Saskatoon Daily Star" and the "Daily Phoenix". In January 1928, both papers were bought by the Sifton family of Winnipeg and amalgamated into the "Saskatoon Star-Phoenix". In the early 1980s the spelling of the newspaper name was modified to "StarPhoenix".

In 1996, the "StarPhoenix" was bought by the Hollinger newspaper chain. It was subsequently sold to CanWest Global Communications in 2000 and became part of the Southam Newspapers division now called CanWest News Service.

The "StarPhoenix" puts out six editions each week and also publishes a weekly, the "Saskatoon Sun" (no relation to the Sun Media Corporation newspaper chain). It is also part of the canada.com Internet portal.
