Our fact-checkers verify everything from broad claims made by authors to small details, such as dates and the spelling of names.
Fact-checking records at The Walrus are archived in storage once a story is published. The Walrus counts on its writers to make independent evaluations of difficult topics.
The best journalism—no matter how descriptive, opinion driven, or narrative driven—is based on facts, and those facts should be clearly presented in the story. The Walrus is committed to ensuring the validity of an argument and finding balance between various perspectives on any given issue, while keeping in mind the reliability and motivations of individual sources.
Corrections As soon as The Walrus is made aware of an error, fact-checkers will review the statement in question. Any needed corrections will be noted online at the bottom of the article—and in the next print issue, if the error originally appeared in print. The correction will reference the original error and supply the correct information and the date.
If you notice an error in something published by The Walrus, please send us a message at web thewalrus. If the name of a subject or source is already public and associated with specific events, concealment may not be justified.
Editorial Independence Journalism at The Walrus is produced independently of commercial or political interests. The editorial staff and writers do not accept gifts, including paid travel, in order to avoid any conflict of interest or appearance thereof. When a writer relies on an organization for access to an event or product, we are transparent about the relationship and note it within the relevant work.
We also cite potential conflicts of interest—and, where applicable, credit funding sources—on the same page as the relevant work. Contributors or writers are contractually obligated to disclose practices that may deviate from the ethics policy of The Walrus to our editorial team.
Editorial Standards The Walrus maintains a style guide, which is regularly reviewed and updated to reflect current conversations about culture and terminology. For any situation not covered by this policy, we refer to the Ethics Guidelines of the Canadian Association of Journalists.

Race, class, generation, gender, sexual orientation, ability, and geography all affect point of view. The Walrus believes that reflecting societal differences in reporting leads to better, more nuanced stories and a better-informed community.
