The award-winning North Island Gazette is the best in Canada!
Named best all-round newspaper by the Canadian Community Newspaper Association for its circulation size in 2010, the
North Island Gazette has been publishing for 45 years.
The Gazette is the local paper in the true spirit of community papers, featuring local news, editorial, sports and community information. With a paid circulation of about 2,500 and an effective penetration rate of more than 70% in our major communities, our readers are anxious for Thursdays.
The award-winning Gazette Hamper Fund gives back to the community every Christmas as food, toys and cash are collected to provide Christmas hampers for families in need.
Besides Port Hardy, Port McNeill, Port Alice, Alert Bay and Sointula, our extended coverage area includes Telegraph Cove, Woss, Winter Harbour, Zeballos, Holberg, the Broughton Archipelago and Bella Bella.
