First founded in 2007 as a print and online publication, C2C Journal is now a primarily online journal that publishes content that is longer and more rigorous than what might be found in standard newspaper columns, but more accessible than what is found in academic journals.
We aim to increase the number of commentators in the Canadian marketplace that can be cogent, engaging, entertaining and persuasive when writing about a wide variety of topics, including free-markets, individual freedoms, democratic governance, environmental stewardship, and peace and security.
In particular, we work to increase the representation of new, young authors, to help them develop as writers, and spread their work to new audiences.
