JournalismIS is a broad-based campaign celebrating the contributions of quality Canadian journalism, through advertising and online conversation.
The campaign aims to rally the wider community of journalists and media workers, media corporations and media consumers to increase awareness, recognition and support for professional journalism. JournalismIS is supported by a number of national and local newspapers, broadcasters, journalist associations, unions and industry groups.
The JournalismIS campaign marks the first phase of a longer term effort to mobilize the media industry and the public to support professional journalism in Canada.
