About the Vancouver Observer
The Vancouver Observer is an online newspaper that features award-winning investigative reporting, national, regional and city news reporting, and outstanding coverage of entertainment, food and culture. The Vancouver Observer is currently a finalist for the 2014 Canadian Journalism Foundation's (CJF) Excellence in Journalism Award. VO was nominated for the 2013 CJF Excellence in Journalism Award and was the winner of the 2012 CJF Excellence in Journalism Award as well as the 2010 Canadian Online Publishing Award for "Best Online-Only Articles."
We're an independent news site that serves millions each year. Our site is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and tell stories of hundreds of ordinary people confronting extraordinary challenges with a strong focus on energy projects. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a corporate news company.
How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site for the next week gave just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the next year. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that The Vancouver Observer is there for you and everybody in the year to come.
