One fellow will be selected annually for the program and will work closely with Star reporters to explore the issues and policies impacting older adults, and how existing systems can be transformed to better support Canada’s ageing population. The recipient will also be invited to collaborate with Toronto Metropolitan University’s School of Journalism.
The Star and NIA are also establishing the Journalism in Ageing Prize, which will be awarded to up to five journalists annually. Recipients will each receive $5,000 to work on their proposed journalism project on the topic of ageing, which will be published by the Star.
