Globe and Mail launches Zero Canada Project
The Globe and Mail of Toronto has launched a new initiative called the “Zero Canada Project” in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The online property, located at <http://www.tgam.ca/helpzerocanada>, is intended to provide public health information and to encourage readers to look forward to a day with zero new COVID-19 cases in Canada. It will also offer information about community services including mental health support, educational resources, food banks and other charitable organizations. The website will be supported with social media content.
The newspaper is conducting this initiative in association with Community Food Centres, Second Harvest, Morneau Shepell, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, the We Foundation, the Canadian Federation for Economic Education, the United Way and The Royal Society of Canada.
“Throughout this pandemic, The Globe has been a reliable resource for Canadians,” said Phillip Crawley, publisher and CEO of The Globe and Mail. “Zero Canada is an additional way we can help our readers cope with the pandemic and its many challenges.”
