Metroland is looking for enthusiastic and curious freelance Indigenous reporters with a passion for storytelling and interest in community journalism.
You will use your reporting and researching skills to produce engaging content for print, web and social media, with a focus on Indigenous Peoples and communities. Coverage could include profiles of individuals and their accomplishments; stories on health, social, economic and infrastructure issues facing local communities; and information pieces that will serve to educate our readers.

Can you bring together information and ideas to produce straightforward yet compelling text and create eye-catching photos? Do you have a talent for telling stories in written form, and an eye for the stories that need to be told? Can you share your knowledge of your community, its accomplishments and needs to inform Indigenous and non-Indigenous readers alike?
