Media Co-op

Website: http://www.mediacoop.ca

Purpose: A coast-to-coast network of local Media Cooperatives dedicated to providing grassroots, democratic coverage.
The Media Co-op is reader-funded and member-run. It relies on the participation of hundreds of people through discussions of coverage, photography, written accounts, videos and other forms of participatory journalism. But it also seeks to fund experienced journalists to produce high-quality, in-depth reporting, drawing whenever possible on input and material generated by the membership.
The Media Co-op is formally organized as a solidarity cooperative (also known as a multi-stakeholder co-op) with three kinds of members: readers, contributors and editors. The board of directors has representatives from each membership (one each from readers and contributors, three from the editors).
