Canadian Journalists of Colour is a community of Indigenous, Black and POC media workers across Canada. CJOC offers a supportive environment for journalists of colour to talk about the industry — whether that’s working through story ideas, sharing resources, posting job opportunities, offering mentorship or brainstorming solutions to problems facing our industry. Since CJOC’s launch in October 2018, we’ve attracted 600 members, and have established chapters in cities and postsecondary schools across Canada.
J-Source, led by the journalism programs at Ryerson University (which is currently engaged in a renaming process) and Carleton University, is supported by the post-secondary journalism programs at member institutions of J-Schools Canada/Écoles-J Canada,the R. Howard Webster Foundation and a group of donors.
French-language publication Projet J, hosted by J-Source, is led by the journalism program at the Université du Québec à Montréal and funded by a group of donors.
