About Us

Hi, we’re PressProgress.
We’re Canada’s most shared source for progressive news and information.

We’re an independent, nonprofit newsroom that produces original reporting, critical analysis and educational information on important matters of public interest. Our work has been cited as a reliable source by every major news outlet in Canada.

PressProgress is a media project launched by the Broadbent Institute in 2013. We mainly focus on investigative reporting, fact-checking, analyzing data and keeping tabs on underreported issues – work that requires time and resources many news outlets in Canada can no longer afford to do. We aim to break original stories that Canada’s big news outlets miss and advance stories on issues that matter to our progressive readership.

We break news and shine a light on stories Canada’s major media outlets miss. But we need your help to keep making an impact.
