Western Living — the West lives here

110,000 READERS

Western Living informs and entertains a sophisticated, active and engaged urban reader. Our distinct Western Canadian focus is centred on three pillars: home design and décor, food and wine, and travel. Stunning photography and curated content captivates our readers as they relax and enjoy the authority and inspiration of the West’s best design source.

It’s not that we think you need us to remind you that western Canada is chock-full of fascinating people and places. It’s just that since it’s our job to keep our radars tuned in to what’s new and unusual in this particular part of the world, it’s only fair that we share the best of what we discover with you.

As Canada’s largest regional magazine, Western Living invites readers to stretch their imaginations about living in the West: we share what intrigues, surprises and thrills us about people, places, homes, gardens, food and adventure from Winnipeg to Victoria and everywhere in-between.

Western Living Magazine has a distribution of 25,000 concentrated primarily in high-income households in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg and is published 8 times a year by Canada Wide Media.

Our gorgeous photography, engaging home stories and designer profiles have earned us industry acclaim: in 2018, the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors named us one of their magazines of the year, and we took home the gold for Best Home Design and Décor Magazine from the 2017 Canadian Magazine Awards.
