Huffington Post Canada Nominated For Journalism Awards

Not yet a year old, The Huffington Post Canada is a finalist for two major journalism awards.

The Canadian Journalism Foundation’s Excellence in Journalism Award highlights independence, accuracy, accountability, courage and originality. HuffPost Canada is one of five nominees for the award, which will be presented at a ceremony in June.

Meanwhile, reporter Rachel Mendleson was recently nominated for a Canadian Association of Journalists' labour reporting award for a story on the links between income inequality and the decline of unions.

Mendleson traveled to St. Thomas, Ont., where auto workers are struggling to find work after the closure of the local Ford assembly plant. The story featured prominently in HuffPost’s ongoing ‘Mind The Gap’ series, edited by Daniel Tencer, which chronicles the growing income divide in Canada.

"We're very proud of these two nominations and to be counted among our fellow nominees,” said Managing Editor Kenny Yum. “They highlight the substantial work by reporters and editors and the contribution we're making to Canadian journalism."

Also nominated for the inaugural labour reporting award are CBC’s Kim Johnson, Steve Buist of the Hamilton Spectator and Nicholas Hune-Brown of Toronto Life.

For the CJF excellence award, HuffPost Canada is nominated alongside The Canadian Press, CBC’s The Current, The Toronto Star and The Winnipeg Free Press.

Launched in May 2011, HuffPost Canada was The Huffington Post’s first international edition. The past year has seen international editions also launched in Quebec, the United Kingdom and France.
