Island Parent Magazine

Island Parent Magazine is a publication for Vancouver Island parents with children aged newborn to 18 years. Our editorial philosophy is based on the belief that parents need encouragement, support and useful information, not negative messages or guilt trips. Our publication includes a wide range of topics of interest to parents. We encourage writers to cover topics that are of interest to them or that reflect their own experience—we’re looking for a variety of perspectives, experiences and beliefs. Please keep in mind that our aim is to help our readers feel valued, supported and respected. Ideally, we can raise the profile of parenting and help create a community of healthy, happy families. If an article provides a welcome idea, pertinent information, a laugh or a poignant moment for our readers, we’re achieving our goal.
