Ron Fanfair is well rooted on the communication highway of Canada’s Black community.

A freelance writer/photographer and journalist at heart, his weekly contributions to Share, Canada's largest weekly ethnic newspaper, allow him to inform, educate and entertain a wide cross-section of readers. 

His weekly coverage and reporting of community and international events provide readers with an immediate “play-back” of significant issues to members of Canada’s ethnic communities, a coverage often ignored by the mainstream media.

Fanfair’s articles and photos have also appeared in many local and international media outlets. They include The Toronto Star, The Globe & Mail, Canadian Press, Associated Press, The Barbados Nation, The Trinidad Guardian, The Jamaica Observer, The Wisden Cricket Annual, AC Enterprise and the defunct Caribbean Cricket Yearly and Monthly.

Over the years, he has conducted interviews with dignitaries and heads-of-state and covered several international events, including Caribbean Tourism Organization Sustainable Tourism conferences in Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago, St. Lucia’s Carnival, the St. Kitts & Nevis Music Festival, Caribbean Media Exchange (CMEX) conferences in the United States Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, the Trelawny Stadium launch in Jamaica, the 2007 Cricket World Cup in the West Indies, international cricket tours to the Caribbean and basketball star Isaiah Thomas’ retirement ceremony at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit in 1996. 

He also was assigned to cover the second Black Canadian Studies Conference on Community, Empowerment & Leadership in Black Canada held in Halifax in 2015, the fourth World Indoor track & field championships in Toronto in 1993, the 2003 Road World Cycling championship in Hamilton, The World Basketball championship in Toronto, Muhammad Ali’s last two visits to Toronto and the Toronto Raptors' first season in 1995-96.

Prior to coming in Canada in 1985, Fanfair freelanced for the Guyana Chronicle and the defunct Citizen Mid-week newspaper and served as senior sports producer and assistant editor with the state-owned Guyana Broadcasting Corporation. He was also the Caribbean News Agency’s sports correspondent in Guyana.

He has been recognized with several honours, including the Harry Jerome, African-Canadian Achievement, Canadian Association of Black Lawyers, the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (Canada chapter) Jack White, the Jamaican Canadian Association Community Service, the Guyana Media and the Guyana Sportswriter of the Year Awards and the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal for Community Service.

Fanfair is a member of the University of the West Indies Toronto gala committee that raises money to fund scholarships for students attending the Caribbean institution of higher learning.
