The passage of Bill C-18, the Online News Act, has created a lot of uncertainty about how Canadians will access news in the coming months.

The new law would require companies including Meta and Google to compensate news publishers for linking to their content. These tech giants, meanwhile, have been sharply critical of the bill and have said they will pull Canadian news content from all their platforms.

Many Globe and Mail readers find our stories via search and social media. You rely on us to be a trusted and reliable source for breaking news and exclusive, independent journalism, amid the flood of algorithmically generated news feeds and hyper-partisan debate.

Although the Canadian news landscape could soon look very different, finding trustworthy content has never been more important.
