Anyone know why providing was used here? Is using which provides here correct?

We have a weekly Western Canada newsletter written by our B.C. and Alberta bureau chiefs, providing a comprehensive package of the news you need to know about the region and its place in the issues facing Canada.

  • Because otherwise it would have to be: and it provides etc. Not as pretty.

It is a perfectly normal participial clause post-modifying the noun phrase a weekly Western Canada newsletter written by our B.C. and Alberta bureau chiefs.

Just like I saw Tom waiting for a bus.

You can usually replace such clauses by relative clauses, so your which provides would be good as well.
