News Media Canada recently launched the Local Journalism Initiative, a funding program created by the Government of Canada to help eligible Canadian media organizations produce much-needed civic journalism. It is an exciting opportunity for all journalists and media organizations across the country.
Media organizations who are experiencing challenges covering their communities, or who see communities that lack adequate coverage of civic institutions and organizations, are encouraged to apply to the program.
The application deadline is November 15, 2019.
