Canadian Minority Media Database

Minority media are a vital component of our media ecosystem and contribute greatly to our cultural diversity and heritage. However they often go unnoticed as they target specific ethnic groups and are overshadowed by majority media, whether national or transnational. The purpose of the Canadian Minority Media Database is to shed light on minority media both in their operations and as subjects of scholarly research.

The Canadian Minority Media Database is comprised of two open access databases: the Canadian Minority Media Index (CMMI) and the Canadian Minority Media Bibliography (CMMB).

  • The CMMI provides a comprehensive  index of past and present Canadian-based ethnic and Aboriginal media.
The "map" function provides the geolocation of the minority media current head office using Google map.
  • The CMMB is a comprehensive compilation of scholarly references (e.g., articles, book chapters, books, and professional reports) dealing specifically with Canadian-based ethnic and aboriginal media.
  • Analytical description of fields*
