We practise public-interest journalism.

Media concentration, layoffs, advertising so pervasive it becomes the content: the world of journalism is in crisis. Ricochet is an audacious response to a difficult context. Independent, dedicated to investigative journalism and incisive opinion, Ricochet seeks to illuminate the cultural and political diversity within Canada.

Ricochet is the product of collaboration between anglophones and francophones in a plurinational Canada, informed by an understanding of our colonial histories and supportive of contemporary Indigenous struggles. Bringing together English and French, Ricochet is composed of two distinct editions, run by independent editorial teams and structured as nonprofit organizations.

Crowdfunded and serving the public interest, Ricochet provides entirely free content, contrary to the current tendency to hide information behind paywalls. The English edition has also received funding for specific reporting projects from the Local Journalism Initiative, the Trottier Family Foundation, Greenpeace, Facebook, and the Michener Awards Foundation.

By supporting a new model of media, our readers are financing real independent journalism.
