Defends freedom of the press

World Press Freedom Canada monitors press freedom issues nationally and globally.

Our mission is to advocate for freedom of expression which culminates in an annual event to celebrate World Press Freedom Day.

Through our activities, vigilance and relationships with like-minded organizations, our board of directors and supporters:

  • Raise public awareness for the right of free expression

  • Identify violations

  • Pro-actively defend freedom of the press

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our World Press Freedom Day Awards Luncheon!
