New Canadians Find a National Media Voice
New Canadian Media, a prime example of entrepreneurial journalism, is proud to announce the launch of its responsive, multimedia portal. Earlier today, the portal went live, featuring news and commentary from across Canada – all from an immigrant point of view.
Targeted at all Canadians, NewCanadianMedia.ca delivers news and views about the one-fifth of Canadians who are newcomers, covering issues and themes that are of particular relevance to this growing segment of the population. The site also features aggregated content produced by Canada’s multicultural media, to represent more fully “the pulse of immigrant Canada.”
Registered as a non-profit corporation with an educational mandate, NCM is dedicated to giving new Canadian journalists a platform to develop their skills through training and mentoring. It will advance journalism education by sponsoring and participating in public debates and offering internships.
“We see ourselves pioneering a new niche in Canadian journalism – a crossover between ‘ethnic’ and ‘mainstream’ media,” said George Abraham, NCM’s founder and director (publishing). “We’ve built ourselves ground up, articulating for the first time a fresh take on national issues from a new Canadian perspective – one that is rarely heard in Canadian media.”canada, ethnic media, immigrants, Media, New Canadians
