We have some bad news and good…

If you have been thinking about advertising in TAKE 5 Newsmagazine but have not got around to it yet, now is the time to do it. I just got off the phone with our Press Representative who informed me about a 40% increase in our printing costs, effective immediately. We are not sure what our revised ad rates will be just yet, but we will continue providing our readers and advertisers with the same quality of magazine.

Now for the good news…we are offering clients who book in the next 9 issues the old advertising rate. Call us to discuss the details 250-245-7015 or email

Thank you for your continued support, it means so much to us!
