New project tracks reports released by government

An online project for journalists that tracks and links to government and NGO reports in Canada, which launched in April, now has more than 170 entries.

Reports Canada, a blog run by Ottawa-based journalist Carl Meyer, tracks “new reports released by federal and provincial government departments and committees, NGOs and other Canadian organizations involved with public policy.”

The reports are listed by date published and, where possible, include a link to an official press release about the report and links to PDF and HTML versions of the full report.

Meyer says he created Reports Canada as “a free service for fellow journalists and bloggers.”

Meyer is assistant editor at The Hill TimesDailyPubliNet. He also blogs here.
