One of the best ways to enhance your visibility is through the annual Visitor Guide, a comprehensive and sought-after source of information for all things Gabriola Island. With a distribution of 40,000 copies throughout Vancouver Island, across BC through our Visitor Centre networks, and targeted community mail-outs, it’s a great opportunity to increase awareness of your business and reach visitors who are actively looking for information on what Gabriola has to offer. The deadline to secure your space in the guide is July 29, 2021.

The 2021/22 Visitor Guide will build upon the momentum of the design change from last year. Although it wasn’t the regular visitor kind of year, the new look and feel of the Gabriola Visitor Guide received great reviews. This year there will be some tweaks to make it even better and there is also a 10% reduction for advertising reflected in this years pricing to help offset costs for our Chamber members. (Non-members pay 30% more)

Distribution includes:

  • Gabriola Visitor Centre
  • Accommodations, attractions, and businesses on Gabriola
  • Nanaimo Harbour Ferry Terminal
  • Nanaimo Airport
  • Distributed to maximize a year-round circulation with an initial focus on the Off-Season. This edition will circulate until end of Summer 2022
  • This guide is also published online where visitors can quickly view, zoom, print individual pages, or download the entire publication.
