About News Nanaimo

News Nanaimo was started in 2016 to fill a gap in Nanaimo for in-depth news, investigative reporting and informed analysis. The website is a public service and does not aim to make a profit.

We receive no remuneration for our reporting nor do we directly sell advertising to local businesses or individuals. We place Google AdWords on the site to help defray the costs of upkeep, such as website hosting, various research fees and software, but this is insufficient to cover our costs. Founder Dominic Jones personally pays these costs.

The News section focuses on in-depth reporting of complex issues and investigative journalism that today’s daily newsrooms are unable to devote limited resources to.

The Special Reports section includes longer news feature articles and series.

The Analysis section features editorial opinion by our editors and columnists. If you are interested in becoming a regular contributor, feel free to contact us outlining the kinds of topics you would like to write about. This section also includes the Editorial, which is the official opinion of News Nanaimo‘s editorial board.

News Nanaimo strives to uphold the highest standards of professionalism, integrity and accuracy in its news reporting and opinion. If you see an error, please contact us.
