A pan-Canadian, conversational approach to journalism, featured on CBC Radio, Canadaland and Ricochet Media.
Freelance journalist covering arts, culture and politics; specializes in accessibility, disability.
A Terry Fox Humanitarian Award winner, Aimee values ethics and uncompromising analysis.
Born and raised in the prairies, Aimee Louw spent ten years in Quebec, and two in BC, giving her a pan-Canadian perspective on culture and politics.
Aimee is equally skilled at interviewing and audience engagement. She began producing independent publications and podcasts in the independent media field, co-hosting news and special interest shows covering Indigenous and disability stories (CKUT radio in Montreal from 2011-2015).
Now freelancing for CBC Radio, Canadaland, GUTS Magazine, and Ricochet Media, Aimee takes a conversational and uncompromising approach to interview, writing and production, using personal stories to point to broad-reaching social issues.
Aimee’s column-style and opinion pieces have appeared in the Montreal Gazette, the Media Coop, and The Link Newspaper. She is a contributor of film and book reviews for the GeekyGimp.com, and opinion pieces for the TheTempest.co.
Her Masters in Media Studies and Hounours Undergraduate in Political Science at Concordia University have led her to specialize in media production and analysis about accessibility in Canada. As the Canadians with Disabilities Act is debated in Parliament this fall, deciding the future of disability in Canada, Aimee hopes to be the go-to journalist for ongoing coverage of this important issue.
