Local journalism needs your support

We love the Sunshine Coast as much as you love the Sunshine Coast and we know the importance of local stories.

From reporting on council meetings to water shortages to our vibrant arts scene, we’re on the ground keeping local organizations accountable and connecting communities from Port Mellon to Egmont. We create a record for the community that is not beholden to Facebook algorithms.

You may have heard it’s been a tough few years for the industry, not the least of which was Meta blocking Canadian news from its social media feeds.

Your financial support means we can keep local news on the Sunshine Coast — and every dollar of your support goes back into our journalism.

Thank you.
