Canadian Centre for Investigative Journalism

Dedicated to supporting public-interest reporting.



The Canadian Centre for Journalism (CCJ) aims to build a new chapter in Canadian journalism.

CCJ is a non-profit organization founded by Observer Media Group's ownership team to support quality investigative journalism projects in areas of public interest. Our mission is to hold powerful interests to account and investigate stories that affect the daily lives of our readers.


We recognize that the Canadian media is under serious pressures as the industry transforms. Many important journalism jobs are being lost, leaving no watchdog for the public to protect all aspects of Canada's democracy.

We set up this organization to pursue as many investigations as possible, providing donors with a direct outlet to invest in protecting democracy through reliable, award-winning reporting.

We strive to fill the gap that has emerged in the Canadian media landscape and introduce a new way of delivering the news that matters from a free and independent press.

Our promises


CCJ reporting projects will meet the highest standards of ethics and responsible journalism and we commit to be fearless and relentless in the work that we do.


CCJ will collaborate and publish through partnerships with a range of newspapers and magazines across Canada.


CCJ reporting will be provided to media partners free of charge.


All CCJ reporting will be published by our guaranteed media partner, National Observer.


"Quality journalism has never been more important."
