Our diverse creative team works together to make our neighbours shine



We create and publish the CV Collective, a free lifestyle magazine that showcases the unique diversity and eclectic beauty of the Comox Valley.

In 2014, ROAM set out to publish a beautiful, well-written magazine that showcased creation, exploration and recreation in and around the Comox Valley. Because of the creative talent and natural beauty at our doorstep, it continues to thrive.

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.


Learn more about us on the CVC website, or get regular updates on our Facebook page.





In early 2016, we decided to open The Collective Store + Studio in downtown Cumberland. It’s the physical extension of the spirit behind the CV Collective magazine.

The Store is a perfectly curated selection of local products made by Comox Valley artists, musicians, photographers, writers, makers & creators.

The Studio is our shared space in behind The Store, and is ideal for our CVC contributors.
Some of our friends and advertisers provide us with coffee, tacos, beer, pizza, and unique gifts, all in the same block. Come visit.
