IMG_7430Hi, my name is Peggy. I’m a freelance journalist and reporter based in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Prior to moving to Manitoba, I reported for CBC Edmonton, filing daily for web, radio and television, while reading the provincial radio newscasts on the weekend.

I also worked for the CBC in Toronto, Kitchener-Waterloo, Vancouver and Newfoundland and Labrador, chasing local news and current affairs. 

My mission is to use storytelling to accurately represent our diverse communities, illuminate public information and hold power to account. Some of my most memorable work includes a series looking at sexual assault complaints against Waterloo regional police

I have a Masters of Journalism from the University of British Columbia and a BA Honours in human geography from Simon Fraser University. In 2017, I spent a year investigating Beijing’s educational crisis with migrants for the Toronto Star and Global Reporting Centre. 

I’m a proud recipient of the Joan Donaldson CBC News Scholarship in 2017, as well as the Jack Webster Foundation Student Journalism Award in 2015.

In my spare time, you can find me running outdoors, curling up with a good book or obsessing over houseplants. You can also find me on twitter @peggylam_
