WHERE ALL
VOICES MATTER

ABOUT US

We exist to provide a platform:

  • Where ideas are explored and approaches to challenges facing our nation are discussed

  • Where all voices are heard, and where people can respectfully engage to resolve issues and create a more civil society

  • With a commitment to encouraging a national platform, with freedom of conscience and expression for all

The News Forum values the inclusion of multiple voices and viewpoints. We believe that information must be presented with integrity, and in a manner which is helpful to Canadians when forming their own opinions.

Ownership

The News Forum is a Canadian broadcast station with a mandate to provide viewers with politically balanced domestic and international perspectives, intended to be a counterbalance to the prevailing media landscape.

The News Forum is a for-profit company owned by a group of  Canadian shareholders who hold 100% of the equity and voting interests and who champion the growth of a robust Canadian democracy.

1) Modelling Civility

We desire to see a healthy society where we respect each other and care for ideas without cutting down opposing ones. To do this, we know we have to set the tone ourselves, being an example of respect and vulnerability.

Holding the Tension

Our platform is meant to inform the discussion. We want to be an eff ective voice – not just the loudest. We prioritize reason so people can understand ideas and engage with others, especially when they don’t agree.

2) Ensuring That
All Voices Matter

By creating a counterbalance to the current tone of the media landscape, we create an even playing field for all. This is never for the sake of representing one point of view, rather, to present the complexity and entirety of an idea to our society for their consideration.

Challenging People To
Look Outside Their Box

To engage means you have to be open to ideas beyond your own belief, even those you disagree with. Everything we do strives to encourage people to move outside of their preconceptions for the sake of fully understanding the complexities of an idea.The more we understand the big picture, the more people are able to discern and make more informed choices.

Moving the
Conversation Forward

Programing

People whose world-views are progressive, conservative or anything in between should feel welcome to present, to challenge and to be challenged in a manner consistent with respect for the human right of free expression. Our program mix is driven by high quality domestic and international news aired several times per day. The 24 hour programming mix features unique Canadian content, with ‘Commentary’ programs driven by the strength of their hosts and anchors.
