The Digital Media and Journalism program encourages you to reach out to the local community – and across the world. To help you tell the stories around you, we have a range of multimedia equipment for loan, including cameras, video cameras and audio recorders.
To help you make sure the stories you’re telling are as accurate as they are compelling, we have an accuracy checklist for you to use once you’re back from the field.
To connect to journalistic associations across Canada and around the world, many of which have a wealth of resources for budding and experienced journalists, see the following professional associations and resources.
Canadian Association of Journalists
The Canadian Association of Journalists exists to promote excellence in journalism. The CAJ is the national voice of Canadian journalists and upholds the public’s right to know. It also encourages and promotes investigative journalism.
Canadian Media Guild
Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada
Newspapers Canada is the voice of the daily and community newspaper industry, representing over 830 titles in every province and territory in Canada. Newspapers Canada provides a range of services to its members, advocating on their behalf and increasing the profile of the industry with advertisers, government and other stakeholders. It is a joint initiative of the Canadian Newspaper Association and the Canadian Community Newspapers Association.
The Canadian Newspaper Association (CNA) and the Canadian Community Newspapers Association (CCNA) are two separate organizations that partnered to create one strong industry voice for newspapers in Canada. The CNA and the CCNA are now co-managed by one CEO but remain governed by two separate Boards of Directors in order to preserve the uniqueness of the programs and services offered to each member.
