The Navigator is Vancouver Island University’s (formerly Malaspina University–College) student newspaper. Founded in 1969 as a monthly publication, The Navigator (aka The Nav) soon evolved into the current biweekly publication. In 1992, The Nav became an incorporated society under the Society Act of BC.
The paper is run completely by students—from the business end of selling ads and bookkeeping, to writing, designing, and editing. The Nav strives to provide a venue for students to gain professional experience, and act as an outlet to bring pressing student and community issues to the public eye.
