About Us

WestCoast Families magazine is the longest running, largest family publication in the Greater Vancouver area, celebrating 22 years in 2014! We serve all regions of the Lower Mainland with 50,000 copies printed each issue, nine times per year.

We are a key local resource of information and ideas for parents and families. A majority of our readers are parents and caregivers of children who are newborns to teens. We strive to be THE lifestyle guide for local, active, urban families.

WestCoast Families focuses on information that is important to local families with regular features like family travel, health, education, contests, cool finds, and parenting. We also provide an events calendar so you can keep up to date on what’s happening in the Lower Mainland. Our popular features, like Party and Camp Guides, make WestCoast Families a unique and treasured resource for parents and educators in our area.¬†We work with many local organizations and writers to ensure that our content is relevant and valuable to our readers…information they can only get from WestCoast Families!

Each issue of WestCoast Families includes WestCoast Mom, which turns to WestCoast Dad or WestCoast Grandparents from time to time to ensure we are including all family members. This important section features a profile of a local parent so we can showcase the diverse range of parenthood that comprises our area.

WestCoast Families magazine also publishes the annual Baby Guide, now in its 14th year. The Baby Guide includes valuable resources and information for new and expecting parents. And the annual Family Travel & Adventure Guide is included each year in March, providing travel tips, great deals, local resources and much more for the family on the move.
