Welcome to Scout Magazine. Our main objective is to scout out and promote the things that make Vancouver such a sweet place to be. We do this with an emphasis on the city’s independent spirit to help foster a sense of connectedness within and between our communities, and to introduce our readers to the people who grow and cook our food, play the best tunes in our better venues, create our most interesting art, and design everything from what we wear to the spaces we inhabit. It is wholly independent and made-in-Vancouver by food writer Andrew Morrison with regular and irregular contributions coming from some awfully nice people.

Please note that while we make every effort to reply to inquiries as quickly as possible, the high volume of email we received can make it very difficult. If you don’t hear back from us about something, please don’t feel shy about following up, but if submitted an event to us for consideration for The Scout List only to discover that you didn’t make the cut, please don’t take it personally. We appreciate that every event submitted is worthwhile and fantastically fun, but we can’t always fit everything in.
