About The Navigator:

Founded in 1969 as a newspaper, The Navigator has moved fully online during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The last several years have seen The Navigator strengthen its video and audio news production, as well as maintain its excellence in written work. In 1992, The Navigator became an incorporated society under the Society Act of BC.

The publication is run completely by students—from the business end of selling ads and growing its social media presence, to writing, video and audio production, and editing. The Navigator 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.
