To coincide with World Press Freedom Day on May 3, CJFE is launching its annual Review of Free Expression in Canada. This year's Review highlights a serious issue in Canada: a cult of secrecy. The Review is available for download.
Are you concerned about the state of free expression in Canada? Can you offer a distinct and informed perspective on a specific region of the country? Are you interested in keeping track of free expression issues as they relate to specific Canadian regions?
If so, CJFE’s new Regional Monitor position could be the role for you!
The Cyber Stewards program is designed to address the urgent need to support South-based cyber security scholars, advocates, and practitioners to articulate a vision of cyber security in which rights and openness are protected on the basis of shared research and empirical knowledge.

This World Press Freedom Day, CJFE took to the streets of Toronto to mark the release of our annual Review, generate discussion on the state of free expression in Canada, and honour our commitment to the defence of an open and accountable press around the world.
Today marks World Press Freedom Day. On this day, countries all around the world, from Burma, to Egypt, to Venezuela, are fighting to establish this fundamental cornerstone of democracy. These countries are not taking these crucial freedoms for granted. Are we?
