The NB Media Co-op was formed in 2009 following a successful New Brunswick Social Forum in 2008 in Fredericton, where 200 people rooted in a variety of social movements gathered under the hopeful banner, Another New Brunswick and World are Possible. The workers, students, anti-capitalists, anti-imperialists, peace activists, indigenous rights activists, feminists, gay rights activists, labour unionists, environmentalists and artists gathered at this forum recognized they had one problem in common: the media in New Brunswick. Following the adage, “Don’t Hate the Media, Be the Media,” they did just that, and the NB Media Co-op was born months later.

The NB Media Co-op is made possible by dedicated folks from across the province. We also thank the many people who chose to remain anonymous who also provide us with service and support.

The NB Media Co-op chose the not-for-profit co-operative model, as we felt it to be the most democratic model for producing and disseminating media. Free from the constraints of the profit motive, advertisers, and state funding, the NB Media Co-op is able to tell stories without fear of censorship and from the perspectives of those often ignored, marginalized or misrepresented in corporate media.
