Our Friends

I-SEA works with a number of organizations to help further our mission.


Climate Access

Climate Access is a “network of networks” that provides climate communications practitioners with access to the necessary tools, knowledge and people to increase public support for action on climate. As a bridge between research and action, ClimateAccess fosters collaboration and facilitates peer-to-peer exchanges of information on climate communications, public engagement and behavior change.


Transition Salt Spring

Transition Salt Spring empowers Salt Spring Islanders to build a thriving community, resilient to climate change. To get there let’s eat locally, waste less, free up our energy systems, and get from place to place with a lower carbon footprint.


Suzuki Elders

The Suzuki Elders are a voluntary association of self-identified elders working with and through the David Suzuki Foundation. We bring our voices, experiences and memories to mentor, motivate and support other elders and younger generations in dialogue and action on environmental issues. Suzuki Elders listen, learn, share and act through educating, communicating connecting and advocacy.

The Center for Investigative Journalism

The Canadian Centre for Investigative Journalism is a non-profit organization founded by Observer Media Group's ownership team to support quality investigative journalism projects in areas of public interest. Our mission is to hold powerful interests to account and investigate stories that affect the daily lives of our readers.

We recognize that the Canadian media is under serious pressures as the industry transforms. Many important journalism jobs are being lost, leaving no watchdog for the public to protect all aspects of Canada's democracy. We set up this organization to pursue as many investigations as possible, providing donors with a direct outlet to invest in protecting democracy through the reliable, award-winning reporting.

We strive to fill the gap that has emerged in the Canadian media landscape and introduce a new way of delivering the news that matters from a free and independent press.

Our reporting projects will meet the highest standards of ethics and responsible journalism and we commit to be fearless and relentless in the work that we do. CCIJ will collaborate and publish through partnerships with a range of newspapers and magazines across Canada. CCIJ reporting will be provided to media partners free of charge.  All CCIJ reporting will be published by our guaranteed media partner, National Observer
