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.


News organizations are responsible for supervising and training their new reporter hire, fulfilling payroll obligations and providing a safe work environment.

LJI reporters are expected to have a strong knowledge of the Canadian Press Style Guide and to use it in their writing. For more information, visit The Canadian Press website.

The Canadian Press will provide training on how to use the News Portal.
