What We Publish

We publish original essays, op eds, and feature articles up to 1,000 words in length, in both English and French, that offer a distinctly Canadian take on media-related issues and help readers understand the state of journalism and storytelling in our country and how the changing landscape affects our democracy, culture, and daily life. We look for fresh, sharp, original thinking. Topics that interest us include, but are not limited to:

The link between democracy and the media (for examples, view our Dalton Camp Award–winning articles↗︎).

The value of public broadcasting, the role of public broadcasting in a healthy democratic society, and the future of public broadcasting.

The impact of the media crisis on a cause you know well.

How other countries are managing the media crisis.

The impact of local journalism on individual communities, especially Indigenous and minority communities.

Fake news and corruption in the media.

How digital media is shifting the cultural landscape.

Cultural policy in the internet age.

What Canadian content means and what importance it has on our national identity.

How foreign media giants (including Google and Facebook) behave, the role they play in creating Canadian content, and how (much) they should be regulated.
