Northword is distributed bimonthly across northern BC, from Prince George in the south up to the Yukon border, and from Haida Gwaii in the west out to Jasper in the east. Each issue is distributed widely in the towns, cities, and communities of our region, available free to readers at restaurants, pubs, colleges/universities, libraries, book stores, hotels, info centres, and more. We also have a growing subscription list of readers who live outside the region. With 10,000 copies hitting the streets each issue, our advertisers get great exposure across northern BC, reaching a wide range of residents and and tourists alike.

We are the only print publication serving all of northern BC, and we are one of the few independent media organizations left in the region. This means we offer a unique opportunity for advertisers to connect with the population of the north, and do so in a magazine much-loved and eagerly anticipated. Please contact us to receive current rates and detailed file specifications. For an overview, download a copy of our media kit here, or have a browse below. For those advertisers interested, we also offer in-house design services (at no extra cost) to work with you on putting together an effective and great-looking ad. We print six issues a year, starting with January/February. Our booking deadlines for ads we build are just over a month prior to the issue’s publication (e.g. for the March/April issue, the deadline is January 27). Camera-ready deadlines are 1-2 weeks after. For a list of the year’s deadlines, please email
