ProjetJ suspending publication until further notice.

By Christopher Waddell, Publisher

We regret to announce that J-Source’s companion publication ProjetJ suspended publication in early May due to a shortfall in funding.

Like J-Source, ProjetJ began in 2007 as a collaborative venture initially under the Canadian Journalism Foundation led by journalism faculty at Université Laval, the University of Ottawa and the Université du Québec à Montréal. It has been a valuable media resource for students, researchers, journalists, those working in communications and other media industries as well as decision-makers and those interested in journalism. Throughout that time it has reported on the changes in Canada’s French-language media in a journalistic, impartial and rigorous manner.

However, over the summer we are taking the opportunity to expand the content of J-Source to include current news and other material that would have run in ProjetJ, in French. We published our first piece, by former ProjetJ publisher Colette Brin, on the 2017 Digital News Report. We also expect to be in a position to announce an exciting new future for ProjetJ and its content in September.

If you or your institution would like to volunteer to assist with ProjetJ’s transition or with reporting on French-language media in Canada, please contact myself at publisher@j-source.ca.
