World Press Freedom Canada monitors press freedom issues nationally and globally. Our mission is to celebrate World Press Freedom Day and to advocate for freedom of expression. Through our activities, vigilance and relationships with like-minded organizations, we raise public awareness for the right of free expression, identify violations and pro-actively defend freedom of the press.
World Press Freedom Day in Ottawa
World Press Freedom Canada holds an annual luncheon to mark UNESCO’s World Press Freedom Day and honour award-winning journalists. The event was scheduled for May 5; however, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, we’ve decided to postpone the luncheon for the protection of our guests and the community at large.
