New digital subscription program at the Comox Valley Record offers readers exclusive benefits

Truth. Clarity. Community.

It’s what we do.

Since 1986, the Comox Valley Record has provided trusted news and informative content for locals to enjoy and stay up to date.

Today, it lands on more than 21,000 doorsteps every week and our website, comoxvalleyrecord.com, is accessed more than 500,000 times per month, bringing the most need-to-know local news to community members.

Whether it’s breaking news, community information, entertainment, opinion or local sports, we pride ourselves in bringing the most relevant news to our readers.

Sparking dinnertime conversations.

Sparking action.

Sparking change and celebration.

The core of local journalism goes beyond simply chronicling all the Comox Valley has been and all that it will become – it’s asking the tough questions along the way. We’re proud that we hold community leaders accountable to the people we serve.

The Comox Valley Record team has been here when it matters most, especially when the news gets tough, filtering through the noise to bring you the raw and the real.

And now, the Comox Valley Record is entering into a new chapter. By launching an added-value subscription program that provides exclusive content and premium benefits to readers, the community has the opportunity to directly support local journalists who live and work here, in the community they serve.

“Engaged local journalism is an essential democratic force and one of the key building blocks to developing an inclusive community that works for everyone,” Randy Blair, Black Press Media’s chief operating officer, said.

“The value-added subscription program is a way for individuals to assist their local community news media in their efforts to give voice to those individuals and organizations who are working to build a better tomorrow for all.”

Digital subscriptions offer the flexibility for each customer to hand-select a plan that fits their readership needs.

Added benefits include exclusive newsletters delivered right to your inbox, community forums to connect with the news team, unlimited access to our provincial news website Today in BC, as well as puzzles, crosswords and premium contests.

In addition to local content, you will also be able to enjoy reading breaking news from around the province and across Canada, brought to you by one of the largest networks of journalists in North America.

We recognize the importance and direct impact of breaking news to our fellow community members. Stories that share important public safety information will always be accessible to all readers. Most importantly, by subscribing, readers engage with and directly support the entire Comox Valley Record team.

“The importance of local news has significant social and political implications in our community,” said Record publisher Artur Ciastkowski. “We are always striving to make the news delivery more suitable to our audience. Thank you Comox Valley for your continual support over the last 36 years. We’re looking forward to keeping you informed and tackling challenging topics.”

The digital subscription program launches on Tuesday, March 15.
