Send an Anonymous Tip

The Narwhal’s anonymous tip page offers readers a secure method of relaying information or documents to our investigative journalists.

In order to send untraceable, anonymous messages to The Narwhal, you should follow these steps:

  1. Go to a local coffee shop or other public area with free wifi.
  2. Download and install the Tor browser. It provides an anonymous web browser that prevents somebody watching your Internet connection (from learning what sites you visit) and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location
  3. Once installed, open the Tor Browser to open a secure connection. Once the connection to the Tor network is in place you may visit our Tips page and send us a message through the form.

Following these steps, messages, photos or files transmitted to The Narwhal via this tool are untraceable. Note transmissions through this anonymous tip page are one-way, meaning we cannot ‘reply’ to you to follow up or answer questions.

If you would like to correspond with our editors without anonymity but using encryption you can email us directly at editor@thenarwhal.ca using our PGP public key. Learn more about PGP encryption here.
