Who are we?

We're an independent, online news magazine from BC. We're devoted to fact-driven reporting and analysis that informs and enlivens our democratic conversation. Our reporting has garnered numerous awards and the respect of our peers and readers. While some journalism gives the last word to power, we try to give the last word to ordinary folks.

In March and April 2015, Tyee Builders pitched in over $80,000 to expand our coverage of the upcoming federal election. The more we raise, the more we can do. Please join our community of over 3,000 Tyee Builders in making independent election coverage a reality.

Our vision

Canada is undergoing radical change at a time when our national media is in collapse. Federal scientists have been muzzled, far-reaching trade deals have been negotiated in secret, environmental regulations have been slashed, and inequality has increased. At the same time, the oil and gas industry has held unprecedented sway in the public policy of the nation. We are in the lead-up to another federal election -- the time for tough, fact-driven reporting is now.

Canada needs more diverse reporting to strengthen our democracy -- reporting that cares more about its readers than shareholder profits. That's what The Tyee has done for more than 10 years in B.C., garnering numerous reporting awards and a loyal readership. So, join us now and together we'll bring this spirit to the national conversation.
