This is Your Community Newsletter

The West End Journal is the only media outlet exclusively serving Vancouver's West End community, residents, and businesses.

We define our West End as extending west from Burrard Street, from shore to shore. 

Davie Village, English Bay, The Robson & Denman neighbourhood, Coal Harbour, and the Robson High Street are the cornerstones of our community.

OUr platforms

The West End Journal has four platforms for sharing community news and stories:

  • The website at;
  • Our page at The West End Journal on Facebook;
  • The Twitter feed @WestEndJournal;
  • A monthly "This Month In Your West End" printed brochure-style calendar of events, distributed through coffee shops and community centres throughout the community.

The West End Journal is interested in receiving:

  • Advance notice of your community events and activities;
  • Photos and illustrations to accompany your announcements;
  • Your photos taken at community events around the West End and Coal Harbour;
  • Your ideas for "Viewpoints" columns.

The West End Journal publishes (our old-school term for refreshing our website) on the Monday closest to ten days before the first of each month. We do this to ensure that our readers have ample time to plan their activities for the month to com.


There have to be deadlines, and we try to adhere to them. Exceptions are always possible, of course, but we ask that all material, for the next four issues, be received by:
