Who We Are
The National NewsMedia Council is a voluntary, self-regulatory body of the news media industry in Canada. It was established in 2015 with two main aims: to promote ethical practices within the news media industry and to serve as a forum for complaints against its members.
The Council represents the public and the media in matters concerning the democratic rights of freedom of speech and freedom of the media. The Council deals with matters concerning fairness of coverage, relevance, balance and accuracy. Learn more...
The Council’s approach to resolving complaints is designed to give the complainant and news organization involved an opportunity to settle to the complaint without necessarily proceeding to a formal hearing.
