Although CanCulture is a new arts and culture online magazine, as a publication, we promise to our readers that we will report stories to the best of our ability. We understand that we are only human and far from perfect, but will we strive to be as accurate as possible.
As journalists it is our obligation to always present correct information to our readers. All our posts are vetted by an assignment editor, as well as a managing editor before they are posted.
We all make mistakes, but when we do it’s important that we acknowledge them prominently and as quickly as possible. There will also be a note written by one of the managing editors and it will appear at the bottom of the post. All errors, whether spelling or factual should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org
