The CAJ was pleased to have had some of Canada’s top investigative journalists, fact-checkers and researchers working to develop the workshop curriculum. Throughout 2022, journalists from outlets like ProPublica, the Canadian Press, CBC News, Cabin Radio and Radio-Canada taught students and emerging journalists tools for fact-checking and verification, as well as some of the ethical considerations when reporting on misinformation.
Each event was unique, acknowledging different misinformation and disinformation challenges in each province and territory. Some virtual sessions were streamed on Facebook Live and will be maintained in an archive on caj.ca so students and Canadians can access them in perpetuity.
While every effort was made to host these events in person, the CAJ is committed to ensuring the safety of all of our local instructors and participants.
