2 May 2018 @ 11:30 AM - 5:00 PM

Google is bringing together leaders from the Canadian news industry, Google News and the Google Canada team for a full-day event focused on collaboration, training and the business of news.

Hosted by Richard Gingras (Global VP, News for Google), the aim is to convene Canada’s local and national news industry to discuss the future of news in Canada and how Google can better support news publishers and editors. The agenda will focus on monetization, innovation and training. Here are a few highlights you can expect from the day:

  • Overview of the recently announced Google News Initiative
  • Fireside chat and open Q&A with Richard Gingras
  • Deep dive on supporting local news organizations
  • News Lab workshop for editorial/content creators

Over the past 15 years, Google has worked closely with news publishers around the world and here in Canada to support the creation of a healthy, sustainable ecosystem for quality journalism. At News North by Google, the goal is to provide you with an opportunity to hear directly from the Google news team and other industry leaders on how we can build an innovative and sustainable news business for the future.
