MEDIA RE-IMAGINED, AND WHY THIS MATTERS:

Almost all Canadian media is owned by large corporations, with their own agendas and interests. Canada lacks a national, independent media forum that can freely tackle our major social, economic, political, and environmental challenges. 

It's time for a change!

That’s why we are creating an independent, not-for-profit, alternative online media platform that focuses on Canadian issues and concerns.

In short, we are creating a new form of online video journalism!

OUR MISSION is to INFORM, EMPOWER and INSPIRE Everyday Canadians. 

WHY DOES THIS MATTER TO YOU?

Our society faces daunting challenges – accelerating poverty; economic inequality and instability; political uncertainty; climate change; environmental devastation; social unrest; technological transformations. Now, more than ever, we need access to innovative solutions. We need to be informed about issues that are important to us. We need to be engaged. But corporate-controlled media dictates the stories that are covered; how issues and options are presented. Mainstream media shapes and controls our worldview, and what we believe is possible.

We are offering an alternative. We want to provide deeper insights into issues that really matter, but are often ignored or only given “top down” media coverage. Our programs will give voice to social innovators, activists, educators, frontline workers, champions of the marginalized and excluded; community entrepreneurs…in other words, those who are knowledgeable, experienced and passionate about finding creative and just solutions. 

WHY DO WE WANT TO DO THIS?

So you can have a better understanding of important issues and what is really going on behind the scenes. So you can be inspired to become more actively involved. So you can be empowered to make more informed choices.

HOW WILL WE DO THIS?

Through our informative and engaging videos we will:

- Provide well-researched information on important issues;

- Present alternative perspectives and solutions;

- Showcase innovative leaders, activists and change-makers;

- Stimulate discussion, social activism and community engagement.

We want to give you and your concerns a voice, and

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

With your help, we can create dynamic, informative, thought-provoking, and sometimes humorous videos designed to engage the Canadian public. 

Our programs will spotlight local, regional and national issues and people, and will be broadcast on our website and on social media.
