  • Consolidation of corporate power;
    unprecedented cuts to newsrooms;
    concentration of ownership;
    the rise of the public relations industry;
    the intensification of disinformation campaigns;
    reliance on right-wing think tanks.

    While you won't read about it in the papers, these ongoing trends are cause for increasing alarm among hundreds of thousands of Canadians. These trends have also led to the largest resurgence in independent media activity in decades.

    In Canada, as elsewhere, diverse efforts involving thousands of people have arisen. However, these efforts remain largely obscure to the vast majority of Canadians.

    MANA (Media Alliance for New Activism) is Canada's largest network of independent media groups. was created to aid those who are looking for alternatives, or wish to get involved in building independent media.

    MANA receives new queries and requests each week from concerned citizens and journalists from all over Canada. Unfortunately, MANA currently has no funding, staff, or volunteers, and so our online directory is not being updated at this time.

    We need a team of committed volunteers to maintain this website and to build our network. If you are interested in getting involved, please email us, or contact MANA co-founder group, The ACTivist magazine.
