Through this group, our goal is to build a network of BIPOC journalists in Canada because it's something that's been missing from the Canadian media landscape for far too long, and is sorely needed.
We want to create a supportive community and safe environment for us to talk about whatever — whether that's working through story ideas, sharing links to resources, posting job opportunities, offering mentorship to younger journos or just kvetching about the industry. We also encourage members to co-create and collaborate with us. This group is what you make of it.
Canadian Journalists of Colour currently has chapters in Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Montreal, as well as at post-secondary schools across the country. Contact one of our admins if you want to start a chapter in your town.
