About The Tyee

The Tyee is a pioneering digital journalism outlet based in Vancouver, B.C. Formed in November 2003, it is now a widely read and respected platform for forward-thinking, public interest journalism on issues such as inequality, energy, and working life. The Tyee has won numerous accolades for its reporting, including three Canadian Excellence in Journalism Awards, and two Edward R.

About JHR
Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) is Canada’s leading media development organization.
Through skills training and mentorship, JHR empowers journalists to report ethically and

Since 2002, JHR has trained over 13,500 journalists in 23 countries.
In 2013, JHR launched its first project in Canada, The Northern Ontario Initiative. The project worked in remote Indigenous reserve communities across Ontario training citizens to report on, and from, their own communities. It also connected them to interested editors and news directors and taught them how to sell their freelance work to mainstream media outlets. The objective of this project was to build relationships between Indigenous communities and media outlets to create greater awareness of Indigenous culture, peoples and issues amongst non-Indigenous Canadians by strengthening Indigenous voices in Canadian media.
