The Canadian Committee for World Press Freedom succeeded Ottawa's National Press Club in its role of monitoring press freedom issues nationally and globally. The Committee was incorporated as a non-profit body in 2008 with the mission of continuing to celebrate World Press Freedom Day and to advocate on behalf of freedom-of-expression. Through its activities, its vigilance and its relations with like-minded organizations, it shall bring to the public's attention instances of free expression violations and the need to pro-actively defend the ideal of freedom of the press.
