Journalism in Canada is evolving and J-Source, produced by a collaboration of post-secondary journalism schools and programs led by Ryerson University, Université Laval and Carleton University and published out of Ottawa, wants to promote national discussion about that evolution, as well as provide a source for news, research, commentary, advice and resources for industry professionals, scholars, students and anyone interested in journalism in Canada.
They are at a critical point of growth with plans to expand their regional coverage with the hiring of more freelance reporters. The media landscape is changing across the country—as some news outlets consolidate or shut down, others are emerging to provide new kinds of coverage in new ways. With increased freelance coverage of eastern and western Canada, J-Source can explore theses issues in-depth, with the quality that you have come to expect.
They can’t do it alone. You can help by contributing and by spreading the word about their fundraising campaign with hashtag #supportJsource. Your support will help them build a better J-Source that will continue to deliver vital news on our industry for a long time to come.
The Canadian Journalism Project’s websites, J-Source.ca (English) and ProjetJ.ca (French), are produced by a collaboration of post-secondary journalism schools and programs led by Ryerson University, Université Laval and Carleton University, and supported by a group of benefactors including publishers, labour organizations and others who believe in excellence in journalism and its strong and vital future. It also rely’s in part to donations from its users in the Canadian communications and media community.
