About

The Pigeon is your source of in-depth, long-form reporting about Canada-wide topics.

Our staff of young Canadian journalists is devoted to sharing unique stories and prioritizing marginalized voices. We want to hear from underrepresented, inexperienced, and overenthusiastic journalists across Canada.

Our donors make what we do possible. By making a monthly contribution to The Pigeon, you're directly helping us to further our cross-Canadian coverage. One pillar of our fundraising model is devoting a portion of our earning specifically towards paying marginalized contributors. Other ways we spend donor contributions includes upgrading our website, reaching out to new readers, and paying research expenses. 

Want to help us build Canada’s largest youth-led publication? Choose a monthly donation level you’re comfortable with below. Any amount helps.
