Journalism Innovation

Journalism is essential to the healthy functioning of democracy, but around the world the practice faces enormous challenges. In Canada, thousands of journalists have lost their jobs. One-sixth of our newspapers have closed in the past five years. Where and how will Canadians get news and information they can trust?

Our journalism innovation coverage is designed to reveal what’s working in digital journalism, including our own. What are the ethics and best practices in community-based reporting? How do we deepen connections with our audience and include you in what we do and how we do it? We regularly share what we are learning, and invite you to join the conversation.

Want to collaborate? Have an idea for how to do journalism better?

At Discourse, we believe we can achieve more by collaborating than we can accomplish alone. That’s why we invite the public, community organizations, media outlets, journalists and funders to work with us.
