A coalition of 20 local, regional and national media outlets from across Canada Unrigged.ca is a news platform that provides up-to-the-hour news from across the country.
Unrigged.ca offers Canadians a place to access the latest news, podcasts, features, op/eds.
A collaboration between non-profit outlets designed to benefit readers and promote news, the website continuously monitors sites and feeds of its members.
Current membership includes:
- The Progress Report in Alberta
- Briarpatch and Sask Dispatch in Saskatchewan
- The Hoser Media, Upping the Anti, Midnight Sun and The Grind in Ontario
- À bâbord, The Rover and Co-op de Solidarité Pivot in Québec
- The NB Media Co-op in New Brunswick
- The Independent in Newfoundland
- and national publishers The Breach Media, The Resolve, Ricochet, Harbinger Media Network, The Media Co-op, The Maple, Canadian Dimension and PressProgress.
Unrigged.ca also receives support from the Co-op de Solidarité Pivot and the Solidarity Economy Incubation for Zero Emissions (SEIZE)
Together, the outlets have an audience of over a million readers, listeners and viewers in Canada. As a condition of membership, each publication agrees to promote the platform through all of its channels.
The 20 founding members are in active talks with a number of other publications, as well as potential supporters, to expand the scope and deepen regional coverage.
The initial group has been established thanks to a web of working relationships and friendships reaching from Victoria to St. John’s. With the basic parameters and membership requirements established, Unrigged.ca will be discussing membership with a variety of prospective members.
Development on Unrigged.ca has been coordinated by Eric Wickham (The Hoser), Dru Oja Jay (The Breach), Romy Garrido (Press Progress) and Andre Goulet (Harbinger Media Network).
