Local Journalism Initiative
In some parts of Canada, residents do not have access to journalistic information about community issues and institutions through local newspapers, community radio, television or other news media. These gaps in coverage mean that citizens do not have necessary information about news, issues and events that affect them and their day-to-day lives.
The Local Journalism Initiative aims to change that.

Judging Panel

The Judging Panel consists of independent experts from the news media industry. The Judging Panel reviews applications, selects recipients, and decides funding allocations.
