Taproot-EdmontonEdmonton is one of the sunniest cities in Canada, receiving nearly 2,300 hours of sunlight each year. That might help to explain why Edmonton truly lives up to its “festival city” moniker in the summer months. Whether you are a visitor looking for something to do, or you’re a longtime resident and seasoned festival-goer, there’s no shortage of great events in Edmonton.

Taproot Edmonton is a home for local journalism created with the community and not simply for it. Our members are invited to:

  • Ask questions
  • Cultivate ideas
  • Support meaningful local journalism

Taproot is primarily member-funded, with other revenue streams developed over time in service of the members and the journalism they make possible.

Unlike many subscription-based services, Taproot is not selling access to exclusive content. The stories (or videos or infographics or whatever suits the journalistic needs of an idea) are published openly. Rather, paying members have the power to be involved in the process from beginning to end.
