Canada's Largest Urban Weekly The Georgia Straight has been an integral part of life in Vancouver B.C. for 36 years.
In addition to feature stories on everything from politics and social issues to local underground musicians and artists, every issue includes details on pretty much everything happening in Vancouver, from movies to literary events and concerts.
In every section of the publication, from food to arts, there is information about people and places that are unique in Vancouver, and that our readers very likely will not have heard about elsewhere. We strive always to tell stories that are not covered in the mainstream media or to tell them with an unusual angle or twist.
We have several reader polls through the year, which result in the Golden Plate Awards for local restaurants, the Straight Music Awards for local musicians, and the Best of Vancouver Awards for every type of business, service, activity, and weird stuff in the city, from the best bowling alley to the best Vancouver excuse for being late for work.
The Straight has a per-issue circulation average of 117,000 and an average weekly readership of 534,000 (4 week cume of unique readers, as surveyed by Ipsos-Reid Corp.).
