The Beacon is a community newspaper delivered bi-monthly to approximately 5000 households between Dundarave and Lions Bay, in West Vancouver, BC, Canada. Started in 2013, the goal is simple: to showcase our community – its natural beauty, as well as its people.
I have been part of the publishing team since its first edition, nine years ago. We are a group of diverse individuals, united by a passion for this beautiful place we are privileged to call home. We highlight the personalities who have developed our neighbourhoods, as well as those who keep day-to-day life moving along. The accomplishments of our schools are shared, our residents showcased. Good news is our thing.
We are a newspaper for the community…by the community, and as such we rely on community members for quality content. Please see the submission page for information on how to join our team and become a writer/author. You can read the Beacon online here.
