Join Us!

The Media Co-op has been publishing grassroots journalism online in the Canadian context for more than 15 years, and we would like you to get involved!

We want both experienced journalists and people who are new to this kind of work but who are keen to tell some of the many important grassroots stories happening in their communities to send us a pitch – we pay competitive rates.

We also want people to join us as volunteers, editors, and board members. And in order to keep paying writers, to keep the site online, and to move forward with our plans to reinvigorate the organization, we need financial resources. We would love to hear any fundraising ideas you might have, and if you are able, we would very much appreciate a one-time or recurring donation.

In the last few years, we have been going through a period of lower activity as we have dealt with challenges related to capacity and evolving structure. After a series of strategic discussions earlier this year, we are slowly but surely ramping things up, and are more committed than ever to movement journalism. And if you are too, we would love to work with you.

Please email us at to find out more.
