Chief Investigative Correspondent
The network’s chief investigative correspondent, Carolyn Jarvis, has a strong track record of seeking accountability, exposing the truth and piecing together complex stories. She was recently awarded the Canadian Screen Award for Best National Reportage for her investigative series, Who’s Watching? which exposed shortcomings in Ontario’s probation system.
Jarvis’ work has helped changed laws, launched investigations into corporations, and sparked national conversations.
Jarvis and Global News were the sole broadcaster to partner on The Price of Oil series, the largest collaboration of Canadian journalists to date. The investigative project produced a half-hour documentary, Canada’s Toxic Secret, which shone a light on a troubling trend of industrial leaks and spills in Sarnia, Ontario’s “Chemical Valley.” Canada’s Toxic Secret was distinguished with a Silver World Medal from the prestigious New York Festivals TV & Film Awards.
In 2015, Jarvis’ hour-long investigation into the Moncton RCMP deaths put a spotlight on a concerning lack of training and equipment among frontline members of the RCMP. The investigation elicited a nationwide response, followed by labour code charges against the RCMP. Under Fire was also honoured with the 2015 RTDNA Dan McArthur Award for investigative reporting.
From 2008 to 2016, Jarvis was the Chief Correspondent of Global News’ current affairs show, 16×9. Prior to that she was the west coast correspondent and weekend anchor for the network’s flagship nightly newscast, Global National.
Hailing from Richmond, B.C., 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.
