The Canadian Association of Journalists is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017 CAJ Awards for outstanding investigative journalism.
This included presenting the McGillivray Award to the team behind Unfounded, published by the Globe and Mail, recognizing Canada’s top investigative journalism broadcast and/or published last year. The work behind Unfounded uncovered a troubling lapse in how sexual assaults are investigated by law enforcement across Canada. Part of its impact has been the review of tens of thousands of cases previously marked unfounded, along with the re-opening of hundreds of investigations.
Unfounded was also recognized as the recipient in the data journalism category earlier in the evening.
The awards were presented at the conclusion of the 2018 CAJ conference, held at the Hyatt Regency in Toronto, during the awards gala MC’d by Ginella Massa.
