Support Independent Journalism in Victoria

At Capital Daily, our mission has always been to provide our community with fact-based independent journalism that explains Greater Victoria. We strive to go beyond the headlines, to tell the why—not just the what. We know community stories are important, that you deserve an outlet where the spaces, places, and faces that matter to you are included.

We also strive to keep our coverage accessible to all. We do not hide our work behind a paywall, and we do not advertise on our website. Our focus is on our readers, and it's our readers that make Capital Daily successful. Now, we need your help not only to continue to provide the kind of coverage and access that we have been providing for the past year, but to push it farther and reach for bigger stories. We can’t do it alone. Now is your chance to support true local journalism.

Will you join us?

Support Your Community, Support Local Journalism

Victoria is a city with a high saturation in daily news, from television and radio stations to daily and weekly newspapers and online outlets. But it’s lacking in journalists that are given the time and space to pursue stories that go beyond the daily developments.  

That’s where we come in. Our reporters are given the time and space to pursue and investigate topics, to provide you with a deeper, contextual understanding of the issues affecting your community. Whether it’s allowing our investigative reporter 3 months to research a sooke hotel scandal or sending our podcast team to spend a night at the Fairy Creek blockades, we are careful to get the full story. But that kind of work takes heavy resources and funding.

With a paid membership, every penny goes directly to helping our newsroom continue its work and helps our team grow and expand our coverage.In 2021 alone, we were able to launch two new community news experiences with The Westshore, our newsletter focused on Canada’s fastest-growing region, and The Good News(letter), a weekly roundup of good news from the community. 

We hear continually from readers how much they love our coverage and how much they want us to expand into new regions and cover more stories. We are ready to do that, we want to do that, and with your direct support through a Capital Daily Paid Membership, we CAN do that.  

Example of a dark purple-blue shirt, the front has the Capital Daily logo on the right chest front and the back has a slogan, "You like on a rock; don't live under one."

PATRON

Become an Ambassador,
Grow local Journalism

As a Capital Daily Patron, you’re not only supporting local journalism, but actively helping it grow in a meaningful way. You are providing funding and support for our team of dedicated journalists to cover stories we are not currently able to cover, and you are our active ambassadors in the community.

Capital Daily has a proven track record of digging deeper, holding power to account, and uplifting marginalized voices through our investigative journalism. We are editorially independent; no one sets our agenda. And because of this, we forge our own path and ask the tough questions – because nothing’s holding us back. Now is the time to help us do more.

Once a year, you will receive our Annual Impact Report, showing the payoff your support had on the growth and depth of our community coverage, and what the next year holds.

How can I access my Member Benefits?

Glad you asked! Once you sign up, you’ll receive an email with a form to order your exclusive Capital Daily merchandise. In that same email, you’ll also receive a link to join our private Member Facebook Group.

From there, you’ll automatically be signed up to receive our Member Newsletter where we’ll share all upcoming events, new community partner discount offers, and Town Hall Q&As with our editorial team each month.

Once you activate your account in Account Manager, this will serve as your Member Portal. All upcoming news and events will be added there as well so you can simply login at any time and check out what’s new for our members!

Why an annual membership?

With an annual membership, we can ensure we are able to spend the time providing you with the best experiences, and tailor content and events for you and your fellow members. An annual membership also allows us (and you) to plan ahead for speaker series, discuss upcoming story ideas, and ensure we’re thinking about the future, not just the short term. Let’s build our community together!

Will I have to sign up again next year?

Nope! Your membership will automatically be renewed so you won’t have to worry. We’ll send you a reminder email when you are nearing your renewal to let you know though.

How do I cancel my membership?

You can cancel anytime through your Account Manager. You can also update your contact info through the Account Manager.

Do I get different content with a membership?

We believe in keeping our content accessible to everyone so we do not hide articles behind a paywall, nor do we charge for our daily newsletter.

Becoming a member gets you access to special events, town halls, perks and discounts, merchandise, and member-only newsletters.
