The Future of News

Join Canada 2020 and leaders from across the news publishing sector for an important conversation on a sustainable future for news media.

Public interest news is essential to the functioning of a liberal democracy, and Canada is no exception. But over the past two decades, the news industry has faced numerous challenges, with shifting business models, democratization of information, and access barriers that have come with the rise of the internet. While some legacy publishers have adapted, and new digital first publishers have emerged, others are calling for regulatory intervention.

Join Canada 2020 and leaders from across the news publishing sector for an important conversation on a sustainable future for news media. How should the federal government respond to the crisis in news? What can we learn from other countries? And how can we continue to nourish and sustain independent, fair, and transparent news media, in order for all Canadians to remain fully informed and engaged in our democracy?
