The Canary is an independent, shared equity media outlet, that provides reporting and analysis on UK and global news.
We believe a free, fair and fearless media is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, because for democracy to work it requires informed consent from its citizens. We help to generate that informed consent by providing our readers with high-quality, well-researched and incisive journalism.
Our content focuses on news, ideas, and key developments that impact democracy, freedom, equality and fairness.

We are recruiting freelance journalists to write for our UK section, which focuses on UK news and politics – from short, sharp news and ‘trending’ stories to analysis and longer opinion pieces. Our aim is to tell the unreported, under-reported, and misreported stories of our time. So if you’re interested in producing journalism that empowers people to change their world, please get in touch. You’ll find an open, generous and exciting environment waiting for you at The Canary.
