Advertising & Membership

Welcome to Islandist, a publication designed to keep Vancouver Island locals and visitors informed of cool, delicious and otherwise interesting things afoot in a very special part of the world…


Islandist offers a broad selection of totally clickable banner advertising spaces ranging from the surprisingly inexpensive to the very, very cheap. Priced per month at rates that are in lockstep with the financial realities of running small businesses, our ads are ideal marketing solutions for small, independent and local businesses and organisations in BC. For prices and all advertising inquiries, please email Michelle Sproule at michelle [at] and she will get back to you with details on availability and corresponding (reasonable) price tags.

Community Membership

This is the curated list of local businesses promoted on Islandist. We build a complete public profile for every community member and give them the opportunity to publish newsworthy press releases and job postings to our Community Bulletin Board. You provide us with plain text and images, and we do the formatting, polishing and publishing. We offer two levels of memberships, depending on how active you’d like to be. An Islandist Community Membership is an economical and smart way for local small businesses to promote all the awesome things that they’re up to, as well as a great way to find new team members. If you’re interested in becoming a member, contact info [@]

NOTE: Advertising and/or membership does not buy editorial. Nothing does.
