J-Source, a joint venture led since 2013 by the journalism programs at Carleton University and Ryerson (which is currently engaged in a renaming process), 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 across the country 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. With Carleton at the forefront of managing this resource for its extensive network of stakeholders, J-Source enhances Carleton’s reputation as a centre of excellence for academic journalism and providing an invaluable of-the-moment teaching resource for the School.
