In our 13th year, we are expanding

… increasing distribution from Campbell River to Parksville, with more to come in the near future. The first change you will see is in the newspaper, offering great new sections  for all of our readers and advertisers. These new sections will roll out over the next couple of months. We are also working on a brand-new interactive website NOW LIVE! (but still a work in progress) designed to let the reader become a contributor, We want to give our readers a voice!


Arts & Culture

Highlighting events, shows and news in the full spectrum of creative activity- music, theatre, visual arts, writing, crafts in the Comox Valley, Campbell River, and central Vancouver Island. We have been creating some exciting partnerships behind the scenes with local venues. Soon offering you one of the most extensive artists’ and culture events directories on Central Vancouver Island!


Progressive Business Forum

Our area is blessed with a healthy entrepreneurial spirit. The WORD celebrates the ingenuity, energy, time and risk that all small business owners invest in their enterprises. This section will explore- How do we prosper in a sustainable way, that preserves the bounty we all enjoy in this beautiful place? Each month there will be a feature article, tidbits of news, advice, and a directory.


Your Word

Got something to say? No holds-barred opinions and comments on issues big or small. Get it off your chest- better than therapy. Vancouver Island’s lively discussion blog. Also, the place to go for news on what’s happening, right now.


Community Connect

This section will provide our community’s non-profit organizations, activists, and volunteers a voice. Environmental groups, social justice, food security, multicultural workers: find out who’s doing what, and how you can help.
