The OpenCanada teams bids a fond farewell to Anouk Dey, the site’s founding Deputy Editor. Anouk was instrumental in helping us craft the OpenCanada concept, and even more importantly, she brought it to life for us. Over the course of OpenCanada’s first year, Anouk’s energy, vitality, and dynamic intelligence populated the site with original material, connected the CIC with a wide variety of new networks, and propelled a vision into a widely-acclaimed product.

We wish you well Anouk, and look forward to keeping in touch!

Before you click away, we’d like to ask you for a favour … 


Journalism in Canada has suffered a devastating decline over the last two decades. Dozens of newspapers and outlets have shuttered. Remaining newsrooms are smaller. Nowhere is this erosion more acute than in the coverage of foreign policy and international news. It’s expensive, and Canadians, oceans away from most international upheavals, pay the outside world comparatively little attention.

At Open Canada, we believe this must change. If anything, the pandemic has taught us we can’t afford to ignore the changing world. What’s more, we believe, most Canadians don’t want to. Many of us, after all, come from somewhere else and have connections that reach around the world.

Our mission is to build a conversation that involves everyone — not just politicians, academics and policy makers. We need your help to do so. Your support helps us find stories and pay writers to tell them. It helps us grow that conversation. It helps us encourage more Canadians to play an active role in shaping our country’s place in the world.
