Do you want to advertise with The Navigator Newspaper? There are new options available!

The Navigator Newspaper (or, as our readers call it, The Nav) is Vancouver Island University’s independent,  student-run paper with over 20,000 readers. We have strong connections throughout Nanaimo, and throughout our many off-campus neighbourhoods, including Cowichan, Parksville, Qualicum and Powell River. The Nav reaches the diverse, niche audience of VIU students – both returning and new – of all backgrounds, from students who grew up on Vancouver Island and are familiar with the city, to those from elsewhere in the world who have had the opportunity to see everything the university and the island has to offer.

The Nav is a free and easily-accessible newspaper that not only reaches VIU students and staff, but also VIU alumni, and family of everyone connected to VIU. The Nav is published twice a month from September through to April, excluding a break over the winter holidays.

As we make advances towards strengthening our online presence, this is an exciting time for The Nav, and we’d like you to join us! As our next step in joining the wild world of the web, we are excited to introduce web advertising. While we’re still in the early stages of web ads, we’re currently inviting both our loyal advertisers and prospectives to come explore this exciting new avenue with us!
