Welcome to RTDNA Canada, the Association of Electronic Journalists. We are extremely proud of our 59-year history as an association.

RTDNA Canada is the voice of electronic and digital journalists and news managers in Canada. The members of RTDNA Canada recognize the responsibility of broadcast journalists to promote and to protect their freedom; to report independently about matters of public interest and to present a wide range of expressions, opinions and ideas. RTDNA Canada’s Code of Ethics, adopted by the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council, is used to measure fairness and accuracy in our profession and is regarded as the industry standard. The RTDNA is committed to protecting and strengthening the position of electronic and digital journalism and collaborating with other media organizations sharing the RTDNA’s goals.

The association proudly has the support of all major news organizations in Canada.
