Who We Are

J-Schools Canada/Écoles-J Canada is the organization that brings together post-secondary journalism programs in Canada.


Membership in J-Schools Canada/Écoles-J Canada is open to all journalism programs at colleges and universities across the country.


Associate membership is available to research centres and other organizations involved with the continuing education of journalists.


J-Schools Canada/Écoles-J Canada is also the Canadian affiliate of the World Journalism Education Council.


The World Journalism Education Council (WJEC) is a coalition representing academic associations worldwide that are involved in journalism and mass communication at the university level. By bringing organizations from six continents together, the Council hopes to provide a common space for journalism educators from around the world and to focus on issues that are universal in the field. The World Journalism Education Council began as the planning group for the World Journalism Education Congress, beginning with its first meeting in Toronto in 2004.
