About Us

BC Shipping News has quickly become the ‘must-read’ journal for commercial marine industry stakeholders on the West Coast. With a refreshing and unique perspective on maritime issues that are regional, national and international in scope, BCSN features exclusive interviews and in-depth reviews of matters that impact on marine businesses.

Our on-line presence – www.bcshippingnews.com – enjoys a large readership where visitors receive up-to-the-minute news, photos and access to all BCSN digital versions of the print magazine.

BCSN is as much an industry journal as it is a forum for the industry to tell its own story – not just read by the industry, but written by them as well.
