There is a crisis of trust in media organizations as readers, listeners and viewers do not see themselves reflected in the stories that are told about them. New Canadian Media and Magazines Canada hosted a town hall event on March 23 to look at how journalism can better represent the diversity found among Canadians. The event fostered a three-way dialogue with a diverse media audience, journalists from immigrant backgrounds and local magazine publishers.

This event was made possible with the support of Ontario Creates.
