J-Source, a joint venture led since 2013 by the journalism programs at Carleton University and Toronto Metropolitan University, is the go-to source for news about the people, institutions, research and best practices of journalism and journalism education in Canada. Launched in 2007 initially under the wing of the Canadian Journalism Foundation, it has developed a dedicated following of journalists, journalism students, academics and communication professionals and offers an outlet for the work of journalism schools and students across the country.
Gifts to J-Source fund journalism by contributors and support our operations, providing a platform to share important intelligence with the broader journalism community and critical experiential learning opportunities in the School of Journalism.
Donations also support operating costs for J-Source’s newest venture — the Canada Press Freedom Project — which tracks press freedom violations across the country from denials of access to arrests, physical assaults and verbal harassment, to online threats and chilling statements. J-Source and the CPFP enhance Carleton’s reputation as a centre of excellence for journalism education and provide invaluable teaching resources for the School.
