Support TVO Ontario Hubs

The media landscape is changing rapidly, and journalism isn’t what it used to be. Despite the importance of local journalism, it’s been steadily eroding; newsrooms have shrunk, wire content from faraway places has increasingly taken the place of local coverage, and the journalism jobs that remain have converged in big cities, lacking the thoughtful, nuanced analysis Ontarians need.

That’s why Ontario Hubs is so important—it’s a network of on-the-ground journalists in communities across the province. With journalists in Thunder Bay, London, Kingston, Sudbury, Hamilton-Niagara, and Ottawa (Indigenous-focused), this initiative is TVO’s effort to bring local news analysis back to Ontario by producing content that represents all Ontarians and brings underreported stories to light.

Ontario Hubs addresses a gap in the existing media landscape where regional current affairs perspectives are becoming a rare commodity. This local journalism is vital to a healthy democracy, giving voice to those who are not always heard and inspiring Ontarians to become engaged in strengthening our communities.

Ontario Hubs launched in 2017 thanks to an incredibly generous and transformative donation—one of the largest gifts to journalism in Canadian history—from The Barry and Laurie Green Family Charitable Trust and Goldie Feldman. The initiative continues to be entirely donor-funded to this day.

While others are cutting back on local journalism, TVO is committed to expanding and hiring more journalists to provide comprehensive coverage of our vast province. This wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated community of supporters.

These are important stories to tell. You help us do it.

Make your gift to Ontario Hubs today. Our province will be better for it.
