Finish your exhilarating day at work by mountain biking in tall, green forests, canoeing sparkling lakes, kayaking deep, blue seas, or fishing world-class rivers. Live in a modern, friendly community where people care about each other and where environment is not just the adjacent wildernesses of Strathcona Park, the northern Gulf Islands and the wild West Coast, it’s also clean neighbourhoods, community parks, and refreshing greenways. Campbell River is a place to live the good life with topnotch athletic facilities and a lively cultural scene. For the growing family we have inventive playgrounds for the kids, first rate schools, expansive cultural organizations offering music, dance, theatre, art and lots and lots of sports.

shooting and editing. Regular video production is a standard requirement
in all Black Press newsrooms.

- Knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop, iMovie and Canadian Press style.
successful candidate must be a team player, able to multitask and
execute in a complex digital and print publishing environment.
Applicants must hold formal journalism degrees or diplomas, and broadcast training and experience are distinct assets.
A valid driver’s license, reliable vehicle and a smartphone are mandatory.
