Wave developed news coverage in small cities, in remote areas of Canada, between December 2019 and March 2020. The initiative was part of a project under the auspices of the National Ethnic Press and Media Association of Canada, funded by the Local Journalist Initiative (LJI) program from the government of Canada.
The LJI program supports the creation of original civic journalism, covering the diverse needs of Canada’s needy communities. Wave’s work took a special look at small towns, where Lusa descent values and preserves Portuguese culture and language in their daily lives.
The materials developed during the project period are available in 3 languages (Portuguese, English and French) here at BrazilianWave.org.
Below we present the result of the editorial work of Rosemary Baptista, responsible journalist, specially hired by Brazilian Wave to respond to the LJI program.
