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.

We acknowledge that the Magazine Association of BC carries out its work on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.


The Magazine Association of BC is a member-driven, not-for-profit organization which believes in the interconnected 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.

We are committed to inclusivity.
