Links to local news outlets

The City of Nanaimo values our local media and believes a free press is a cornerstone to a fair, just and democratic society. We rely on them to share announcements of all kinds. They cover those events that connect us as a community. They report on the dreaded road construction that impacts your commute. They help us motivate you to get out and vote during elections. And, during an emergency, they are our partners in getting critical messages to you to keep you informed and keep you and your loved ones safe.

With local coverage potentially being blocked from Meta channels and Google, the City of Nanaimo wants to make sure you can still find local news. Below, you will find a list of some major news outlets in Nanaimo, on the Island and in BC. Please bookmark them, share them and visit them regularly.
