  • proficiency in English and CP style
  • adherence to journalistic ethics
  • ability to write accurate and fair stories to deadline
  • computer skills in a Mac environment
  • a post-secondary qualification in journalism or a related field would be an asset
  • basic knowledge of Photoshop and InDesign would be an asset
  • possess excellent communication skills


We thank all applicants for their interest. Successful candidates will be contacted to set up an interview.
