Tavia Grant is a reporter on The Globe and Mail’s investigative team. In recent years, she has covered subjects such as residential schools, migrant workers, workplace fatalities, refugee flows and the gender pay gap.

Her work with colleagues about residential school abuses and the Catholic church won a Michener Award, Canada's highest honour for public service journalism, in 2021. She was part of a team that won the 2019 National Newspaper Award for Project of the Year for a series of stories about key data gaps in Canada. Tavia received the Landsberg Award in 2017 and was a co-winner in 2023 in recognition of her coverage of women’s equality issues. Her 2014 stories on the health risks from asbestos exposure put pressure on the federal government to change its policies about the deadly mineral.

Previously, she worked for The Globe’s Report on Business for a decade, where she covered topics ranging from inflation and global trade to income inequality, currency markets and labour.

Before joining The Globe, Tavia worked as a business reporter for Bloomberg News in Zurich and Toronto. She has a degree in international development and Spanish, and has lived in Switzerland, Belize, Ecuador and Spain.
