Canada is a big, interesting, and complicated place and COMMONS is committed to bringing you thoughtfully crafted and illuminating stories that will challenge everything you think you know about this country.

This past year, we have brought you stories from all across the country. We told your stories about some of Canada’s most powerful families. We launched an emergency season to cover the COVID-19 crisis in long-term care. And right now, we’re taking a hard look at how the police operate in this country. 

We want to keep doing this work. So this week we’re reflecting on the year behind us and talking about our goals for the future. Please consider supporting the work that we do.
