Mosaic Edition is happy to bring its unique reporting of multicultural news online. We thank our readers and advertisers who have stayed with us through thick and thin to get to this stage. For those coming in contact with us for the first time the newspaper started publishing in May 2006.
It was established out of passion for reporting on culture, desire to inform on the unique stories of Canada’s multiculturalism, a belief in the strength and contribution of immigrants and a love for understanding Canada’s mosaic community through adequate information and education.
We report on all communities as proven by our record since inception. We have carried stories of various cultures so far through the flagship print publication and we are excited to deliver the same product on-line to a larger audience in the official languages of Canada.
Our mission statement is ‘Nurture cultural diversity through information, promote dignity and respect through education.’
We are apolitical and do not have any affiliation to a political party. We will give coverage to issues affecting our goals and objectives and elicit information through stories and interviews from elected leaders on issues affecting Canada’s multiculturalism, immigration, settlement and integration as well as arts and culture.
Mosaic Edition has informed and educated newcomers on the challenges, barriers and resources available to make settlement easier in Canada. It has also educated its readers on the unique history of Niagara region and Canada.
Mosaic Edition is privately funded. It derives its resources from advertising. We are introducing a Donation page to help us defray various production costs including manpower, site administration, hosting, software purchases and equipment.
Mosaic Edition is now charging for usage of its digital photographs. We charge $25 upwards for personal photographs and $75 upwards for editorial photos. We can no longer honour requests for free usage of our content.
We ask for your generous donation to allow us continue to reflect and capture the mosaic of our beautiful country. We hope our archive of audio interviews,photographs, stories and videos would be a testimony of our time.
The editorial policy is independent in order to maintain a fair, balanced and accurate reporting. We want to emphasize to our readers that Mosaic Edition has no affiliation to any ethnic group, religious body or political party.
The publication adheres to strict journalism standard. We welcome the contribution of columnists whose opinions do not necessarily agree with our editorial policy. Mosaic Edition reserves the right not to publish any material that is abusive, offensive, profane, inciteful or lurid.
The print publication has been discontinued because of dwindling advertisement revenue and changing landscape of media advertising. We thank our advertisers for believing in our efforts. We hope they will continue to patronize our business. Advertising with us will get your message to the niche market. It will in addition allow the documentation of the stories of those who might not have gained the attention of the mainstream media.
Mosaic Edition is now even more relevant in view of world events.
