To amplify Black voices, improve coverage of Black issues in the news and cultivate future Black media leaders, The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) is launching a new Black Journalism Fellowship program, with CBC/Radio-Canada and CTV News as its first partners and Lululemon, BMO Financial Group and Aritzia as the founding sponsors. The CJF-CBC/Radio-Canada Black Journalism Fellowship, CJF-CBC/Radio-Canada Black Women’s Journalism Fellowship and CJF-CTV News Black Journalism Fellowship will each provide a unique opportunity for an early-career Black journalist—with one-to-five years’ experience—to be hosted for six months at a CBC/Radio-Canada (English and French) or CTV News newsroom across the country. The three fellows will receive mentoring and training for a variety of skills, including video and audio editing, writing, research and investigative reporting.

This new award opportunity aims to amplify Black voices, improve coverage of Black issues in the news and cultivate future Black media leaders in Canada’s major media and community outlets.
