Canadian non-profit agency that trained foreign journalists folds

The Institute for Media Policy and Civil Society (IMPACS), a non-profit organization that most recently ran a controversial program to train women in journalism and the law in Afghanistan, has declared bankruptcy.
IMPACS announced last week that it had filed for bankruptcy after facing financial difficulties in the past few months. A spokesman for the 10-year-old non-profit organization said that cuts to funding by the current federal government made it impossible for the organization to continue its projects.
