The Collective Magazines showcase the uniquely diverse lifestyles and eclectic beauty of Vancouver Island communities. Covering arts, culture, sport, and recreation, our publications are locally-minded with an island outlook celebrating the best our regions have to offer.
This free magazine is created with quality and care to deliver a collectible reference for long-term enjoyment that will leave a lasting impression.
The Collective Magazines are driven by the collaborative efforts of local writers, photographers, artists and community partners to help describe local discoveries, immersing readers in nearby adventures and providing both residents and visitors with a map of inspiration to create, play, and explore the treasures in the heart of Vancouver Island.
