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.
