The NNC is Canada’s national press council. It was established in 2015 to promote ethical practices within the news media as well as to review and adjudicate complaints from the public.
Most of the English-language daily and community papers in Canada belong to the NNC, as do a number of Canadian magazines and new media organizations. Papers in Quebec and Alberta are served by separate provincial press councils.
Like the other member publications, Story Board pays a fee to belong to the NNC. All member publications agree to abide by the decisions the Council makes with regards to complaints from the public. The Council considers complaints that concern accuracy, fairness of coverage and attribution, among other areas of concern.
