16X9′s Chief Correspondent, Carolyn Jarvis has spent more than a decade reporting and chasing stories across the country for Global News. After five postings with the network, from Vancouver to Ottawa, Jarvis moved to Toronto in 2011 to work with the network’s current affairs division full time.
Her work, ranging from investigative to feature reporting, has won numerous awards and acclaim. Many of her stories involve unprecedented access to otherwise closed-off communities, such as her hour- long feature on the controversial, ultra-orthodox Jewish community of Lev Tahor, which recently won a Bronze World Medal at the 2015 New York Festivals.
In 2015, Jarvis’ hour-long investigation into the devastating Moncton RCMP shootings put a spotlight on a concerning lack of training and equipment among frontline members of the RCMP. The investigation elicited a nationwide response, including an on-going debate in Parliament.
Prior to working with Global News’ current affairs division, Jarvis was the west coast correspondent and weekend anchor for the network’s flagship nightly newscast, Global National. This posting saw Jarvis cover breaking news events and stories of international attention.
Jarvis also hosted Focus: Decision Canada, a national 30-minute political program based in Ottawa, devoted to the 2011 federal election.
In the summer of 2014, Jarvis took part in a prestigious Investigative Journalism fellowship at Columbia University, where she sat as the only Canadian among a group of international investigative journalists.
Hailing from Richmond, BC, Jarvis comes from musical roots. She has a Bachelor of Music in vocal performance and has sung professionally with classical ensembles, such as Alberta’s Pro Coro. Jarvis, a champion of the arts, was recently elected as a board member to the Canadian Opera Company.
