The Search for Light Dark Matter with the NEWS-G Detector

The NEWS-G direct dark matter search experiment uses spherical proportional counters (SPC) with light noble gases to explore low WIMP masses. The next phase of the experiment consists of a large 140 cm diameter SPC installed at SNOLAB. This talk will discuss several improvements of the detector, preliminary results of the last campaign, design and construction of the ECUME SPC, and the potential to achieve sensitivity reaching the neutrino floor in light dark matter searches.
