Canadian Journalism Foundation names Greg Clark Award winner

Jennifer Bieman, a reporter with the St. Thomas Times-Journal in St. Thomas, Ont., as this year’s winner of the Greg Clark Award for early-career journalists.

The Greg Clark Award, unique in Canadian journalism, offers working journalists a $5,000 stipend to spend a week gaining insight, gathering strategic information and meeting key decision-makers on a specific issue or beat.

The CJF selected Bieman for her proposal to explore how the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshall and its counterpart in Alberta, the Office of the Fire Commissioner, conduct investigations. To read more about Bieman’s work, please click here.
