Journalism is community. Pure and simple. Whether it’s through collaborative storytelling or engaging new audiences, this year’s CAJ national conference will dive deep into how the idea of community is wholly intertwined within journalism’s DNA.

From an opening plenary right through to the conference’s closing awards gala, we promise a thought-provoking two-day experience. CAJ19 brings you panel discussions and hands-on workshops from industry pros including: 

Angela Sterritt 

Cheryl McKenzie

Fred Vallance-Jones

Jana Pruden

Jesse Brown

Julian Sher

Ramon Escobar

Sunny Dhillon

Shaneen Robinson 

Tamara Baluja


Sessions will dig into the essentials of local news reporting, self-care, narrative writing and data journalism. 

Whether you’re a fresh-faced new grad, or a long-time staff reporter; a news entrepreneur, or a freelance writer and editor, we are certain you will return home with fresh perspectives on the role journalists can play in a democratic society.

We invite you to be part of our community.

See you in Winnipeg!
