A RECAP OF #CAJ18!

 

We get so excited about CAJ conferences every year, but this one was special. This year we celebrated 40 years of the CAJ. Forty years of providing vital advocacy and professional development on behalf of journalists—always with an eye to the future. Our delgates and presenters collaborated on valuable discussions on press freedom, freelancing, interviewing, data, ethics and more—and they networked throughout.

As journalism continues to take a hit, with layoffs piling up and continued attacks on press freedom, we know it's not easy in Canadian newsrooms. And we also know this:

#JournalismMatters

So we rallied in Toronto. 

If you missed the conference, check out the #CAJ18 page and browse some of the liveblogs we offered.
