Jackie Wong

Jackie Wong is a senior editor at The Tyee.

She works with the editorial leadership team to shape editorial strategy and support the work of staff writers, journalism fellows, freelance contributors and practicum students.

Wong has been involved with The Tyee since 2005, when she first set foot in the office as a student and youth outreach intern. In the years since, she has worked with The Tyee as a freelance contributor, a fellow and on special reporting projects. Her journalism on housing, racial equity issues and drug policy has been published in local and national publications.

Wong has previously worked as a facilitator, writer, editor and educator in Vancouver’s non-profit and post-secondary communities. She has been invited to speak on newsroom diversity issues, trauma-informed reporting and journalism ethics for the Canadian Association of Journalists, Simon Fraser University, the British Columbia Institute of Technology and community groups across Canada.

Outside of work, Wong can be found away from her laptop reading fiction and chasing the sun. She lives with her family and their black cat in what is commonly known as Vancouver, B.C., on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Wautuh nations.
