The Canadian Journalism Project's websites, J-Source.ca (English) and ProjetJ.ca (French), are produced by a collaboration of post-secondary journalism schools and programs led by Ryerson University, Université Laval and Carleton University, and supported by a group of benefactors including publishers, labour and others who believe in excellence in journalism and its strong and vital future.

Our goal is to promote national discussion about journalism as well as providing a source for news, research, commentary, advice and resources for industry professionals, scholars and students. Your comments, suggestions and offers of support are very welcome.
