About MagsBC

The Magazine Association of BC is a member-run organization. We unite a diverse network of member magazines and professionals, and develop strategic partnerships, projects and programs that strengthen our industry.

Our History

The Magazine Association of BC (MagsBC) was founded in 1993 to represent, connect and promote the British Columbia magazine industry. 

Our membership and affiliate base consists of publishers, editors, writers, designers, salespeople, printers and developers who work for magazine titles that range from literary and lifestyle, to business and news, and are in both online and in print formats.


The Magazine Association of BC is a member-driven, not-for-profit organization which believes in the inter-connected cultural and economic value of a vital British Columbia magazine publishing industry.

MagsBC works to foster an environment where new magazines are nurtured, established magazines are supported and magazine staff are able to develop their skills.

Its originating and continuing purpose is to promote the value of the sector.
