TORONTO, ON, Feb 22, 2024/ – The Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) Newsroom Diversity Survey is back for a fourth consecutive year.

“The 2023 diversity survey set a high-bar as it collected the most comprehensive sample of newsroom demographic data ever compiled in Canadian media history,” said Brent Jolly, CAJ president.

“Our challenge for 2024 is ambitious: to gather more and more data to better understand the progress being made by industry to ensure that newsrooms reflect the diversity, equity, and inclusiveness of the communities they serve.”

Previous versions of the Newsroom Diversity Survey can be found on our website:

Last year’s survey gathered data on 6,035 journalists working in 273 newsrooms.

The deadline for newsrooms to complete the 2024 survey is May 15.

The Canadian Race Relations Foundation has generously provided three years of funding to strengthen the administration of the survey; this includes hiring a part-time diversity survey officer who works to increase the number of newsrooms participating.

Qlik provided data analysis and visualizations that made the statistics in the 2023 report and the interactive website possible.

The University of British Columbia’s School of Journalism, Writing and Media has generously supported this year’s edition of the survey by providing the research assistance work of multiple graduate students to help aid the CAJ in its outreach efforts.

This survey was also made possible through the support of numerous generous partners including the News Leaders Association and the Fédération professionnelle des journalistes du Québec.
