The Collective Magazines

A free lifestyle magazine that showcases the unique diversity and eclectic beauty of their communities.

We set out to publish a beautiful, well-written magazine that showcased creation, exploration and recreation in and around communities on Vancouver Island. In 2014, we launched the CV Collective that highlights the Comox Valley area. Thanks to the creative local talent and natural beauty at our doorstep, it continues to thrive. In 2020, we teamed up with Boleyn Media to launched our second publication, the Strathcona Collective, that focuses on the Campbell River and Strathcona region.

What does our magazine’s tagline, Create, Play, Explore, mean?

Create // The Comox Valley’s natural beauty drives and inspires its creative culture. It is our passion to promote and develop art, culture and innovation through our publication.

Play // CV Collective keeps awe and wonder at the heart of our publication because fun keeps us young. We are committed to fresh ideas and perspectives to push our envelope and yours.

Explore // We live here because of the lifestyle that this community affords us, and we know that’s why you’re here too. It’s our pleasure to showcase the adventures worth discovering in and around the Comox Valley.
