JAELA BERNSTIEN

Journalist Portfolio

 

Hello! 

I'm a bilingual journalist based in Montreal, Quebec, where I work for CBC News.

I'm currently covering daily news in Montreal for CBC's regional and national programming on TV, radio, web and social media. I am a multimedia videojournalist, meaning that I often work solo — pitching, researching, filming, and editing my own reports.  

In my career I've had the opportunity to explore much of Quebec and parts of Nunavik, covering a range of stories: I've reported live from flood zones, corruption trials, and election nights; I've been on the frontlines of protests during Quebec's Printemps érable and the G7 summit; I've even crawled through a newly opened ice-age cavern beneath Montreal.
