New Indigenous Reporters Network
 
 
Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) and the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) are launching the Indigenous Reporters Network, a first-of-its-kind program designed to support and empower Indigenous journalists from coast to coast to coast.

The Canadian Association of Journalists is a professional organization with more than 900 members across Canada. The CAJ's primary roles are public-interest advocacy work and professional development for its members.

Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) is Canada’s leading media development organization. It trains journalists to report on human rights and governance issues in their communities.

The Indigenous Reporters Network will bring together Indigenous journalists, both emerging and established, to build online and offline communities within the CAJ. This network provides Indigenous journalists at all career stages with opportunities to develop their skills, participate in CAJ events and professional development, and build new connections with their peers across the country.

"There is a shortage of Indigenous journalists in the industry, and this initiative creates an opportunity for emerging journalists to launch a career, or for established Indigenous journalists to hone their skills," said Karyn Pugliese, past-president of the CAJ. "Having more Indigenous journalists in the industry will be key to meeting media goals for reconciliation."
