This is what comes of reading the mini-Annals of Improbable Research ("mini-AIR") which is "a free tiny monthly *supplement* to the bi-monthly print magazine" comprised of "tidbits too tiny to fit in the Annals of Improbable Research (AIR),the journal of inflated research and personalities."

Media Support Solutions 

is "a communications for development consultancy and Media Support Partnership, an NGO with charitable status registered in Scotland, are the two organisations which make up Media Support. Both companies work to harness the power of communications to benefit the information-poor in the world.

Media Support brings together a world-wide group of specialists who have pioneered the use of mass media in humanitarian emergencies and development programmes over the past ten years.

Much of their work focuses on radio training and programming, but also includes television, print, the Internet and community theatre. Drawing on its network of specialists, Media Support advises organisations on their communications strategy, manages field projects and disseminates good practice."

Internews- Supporting Open Media Worldwide 

"Internews Network "is an international non-profit organization that supports open media worldwide. The organization fosters independent media in emerging democracies, produces innovative television and radio programming and Internet content, and uses the media to reduce conflict within and between countries."

This is a purely U.S. NGO. Searching for Canada even in the North American region brings up nothing.

However they do have overseas job openings for people with high-level journmalism credentials.

No entry-level work or internships that I can see.
