RedWAY BC News E-zine (Electronic Magazine)

RedWAY BC News is a free on-line newsletter created with direct input from its readers to promote communication about the diversity of Canada's Aboriginal peoples and cultures.  It provides ways to immediately strengthen and enhance the creative and technical capacity of Urban Aboriginal Youth, businesses and organizations throughout Canada, starting with BC's Lower Mainland. Our mandate is "honour, inform and connect."
By publishing culturally relevant on-line content in an electronic magazine (or e-zine) format, RedWAY BC News is an innovative and interactive communication tool. It helps celebrate successes and address the wide range of needs faced by Urban Aboriginal Youth in BC. Since November of 2003, Spiritlink Communications has worked closely with over 70 Urban Aboriginal Youth to design, create and maintain the free, secure e-zine for the community.
Originally designed to gather information for and to promote the RedWAY BC Website project (, RedWAY BC News has expanded its content, subscriber base and reach to include an international audience of over 9,200 international subscribers (as of August 2010).

Content for each issue: 7 regular topic sections, up to 5 paid articles, and 5 free articles set aside to promote social justice (Urban Aboriginal Youth, Non-profit groups, and community initiatives)
Writers: mainly Aboriginal Youth Media Team members, but content submitted by community membersthat 'honours, informs and connects' is also welcome! 
Paid articles or enhanced listings available? YES  - only 5 paid articles per issue

Frequent and proposed new sections:
As we develop partnerships to support more Youth writers locally and nationally, we'd also like to have regular updates in these past sections: Leadership and Self-Governance News, From the Street - Youth Voices, Tech-e Talk, and Indigenous Education.

We've also had interest in adding in these new sections: Aboriginal Womens Empowerment, T4 Industry News (Trades, Tourism, Technology and Tertiary/Service Sectors), Aboriginal Sports and Recreation news, Sustainability and Environmental news...
