The Toronto Star is furthering its commitment to powerful collaborative journalism through a $100,000 contribution supporting the Investigative Journalism Bureau (IJB), a pioneering non-profit newsroom based at the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health.
The IJB, which launched last fall in partnership with the Dalla Lana School’s journalism programs – the Fellowship in Global Journalism and the Certificate in Health Impact – brings together professional and student journalists, academics, researchers and media organizations to tell deeply reported stories in the public interest.
The Toronto Star, Canada’s largest daily newspaper, was the founding media partner of the IJB, which was conceived by Star investigative journalist Robert Cribb.
To date, nearly 20 IJB investigative pieces, including a ground-breaking inaugural series that received national journalism award citations in Canada and the U.S., have been published in the Toronto Star.
This donation will bolster and expand the IJB’s innovative research and reporting model and extends Torstar’s historic commitment to high-impact investigative journalism in Canada.
