Support Community Journalism in Newfoundland and Labrador
Our donors make our coverage possible and accessible to everyone. We’re asking for your help. Will you join us?
Message from Drew Brown, Editor in Chief
The Independent is committed to providing stories and analysis that inform and empower the people of Newfoundland and Labrador.
We’re small, but we punch above our weight. As legacy media outlets in this province starve, shrink, and get gobbled up by mainland media barons, our job—producing meaningful and accessible local journalism and content—becomes more important than ever.
In 2021, we stayed true to our mission covering issues that other outlets overlooked, from angles they didn’t see. In 2022, we’re poised to grow and thrive with the support of our readers; delivering more frequent stories, more diverse perspectives, and broadening our regional coverage in the province.
Thank you for contributing to this work, together we bring community supported journalism to everyone.
