Taproot Edmonton

Taproot Edmonton is a home for local journalism created with the community and not simply for it. Our members are invited to:

  • Ask questions
  • Cultivate ideas
  • Support meaningful local journalism

Taproot is primarily member-funded, with other revenue streams developed over time in service of the members and the journalism they make possible.

Unlike many subscription-based services, Taproot is not selling access to exclusive content. The stories (or videos or infographics or whatever suits the journalistic needs of an idea) are published openly. Rather, paying members have the power to be involved in the process from beginning to end.
