Join the Collective - New Canadian Media

What is the New Canadian Media Collective?

NCM is going places! Our high-calibre journalists are reporting on every corner of Canada, covering a spectrum of ethnocultural communities in rural and urban regions. Our journalist training workshops and webinars led by industry experts are gaining momentum across the nation, empowering mentees and immigrant journalists with full support, resources and guidance, ensuring they reach their fullest potential. We are collaborating with a multitude of news media organizations to bring authentic, ethically-sourced stories. Our ultimate aim is to make sure that every community and minority group is heard and respected.
