Lisa LaFlamme has been at the forefront of journalism for over 30 years tackling some of the biggest issues of our time, travelling the globe, delivering breaking news and bringing it back home to Canadians.

The internationally respected journalist has interviewed major newsmakers, Prime Ministers, Presidents and Princes while always keeping the spotlight on the injustices that plague the world’s most oppressed.

The veteran journalist is the recipient of 12 Canadian Screen Awards, consecutive RTDNA awards a Lifetime Achievement Award for broadcasting and journalism and in 2023, The Gordon Sinclair Award for her “exceptional body of work in broadcast journalism.” Recently she was awarded an honorary doctorate from Toronto Metropolitan University (2023). She has previously been awarded honorary doctorates from University of Windsor (2018), University of Ottawa (2014), and Wilfrid Laurier University (2006).

A passionate advocate of democracy in journalism, LaFlamme volunteers for Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) and has travelled with the organization to the Democratic Republic of Congo to mentor young journalists in Goma, in the heart of the conflict zone. She serves as honorary co-chair of the annual JHR Night for Rights and in 2022 was awarded the JHR award for Human Rights Reporting.

Lisa is also an ambassador for Plan International and volunteers for Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan.
