Canadian Association of Journalists annual conference preview
This weekend, the Canadian Association of Journalists annual conference will be taking place at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. A number of events will take place in partnership with Newspapers Canada's Ink&Beyond Conference, and you can register up until the day the conference begins, April 27 (those attending the Ink&Beyond receive a discount). Keynote speakers at CAJ include NDP leader Thomas Mulcair, and Kenny Yum, managing editor at Huffington Post Canada. Dawna Friesen will emcee the CAJ Awards gala and banquet Saturday evening. In terms of sessions you can find at the conference, there will be training for beat reporters, a weekend-long computer-assisted reporting training session, and a number of panels and sessions that journalism students or recent graduates will find helpful.
