J-Source highlights need of funding for ethnic media in response to COVID-19

June 3, 2020

A recent article by J-Source has highlighted the critical need for funding to third-language media.

As noted in the article, ethnic media play a vital role in sharing news and information about the pandemic to its readers. Receiving information in language of comfort is especially vital for recent immigrants and elderly ethnocultural  community members  who do not look to mainstream media platforms for their information.

The article, written by Laura Howells, features CEMA’s lobbying efforts, government involvement and the insight from independent ethnic media producers, including Kiu Rezvanifar, president of the Canadian Ethnic Media Association.

We thank J-Source for including CEMA in this conversation.
