Village Living magazines to launch in Toronto, Montreal
Residents and businesses in Toronto's upscale Forest Hill neighbourhood along with other surrounding communities will soon find a new magazine in their mailbox.

Village Living Publications is launching the first issue of Village Living Magazine (West Village). The free bi-monthly mag will be distributed via Canada Post to 14,000 locations in Forest Hill, Hillcrest Village, Wychwood Heights, Regal Heights, and Upper Village.

 


In addition to a "handpicked selection of compelling feature stories" the magazine also has a range of regular contributors including the Healthy Butcher's executive butcher and chef, Dave Meli, and executive vegan chef and author of Eat Raw, Eat Well, Doug McNish. Other regulars will include "eco-specialist" Lisa Borden, clinical nutritionist Josh Gitalis, food educator Jaime Slavin and a handful of wellness writers.

"Upon moving into the neighbourhood, I couldn't help but notice that this vibrant and growing community lacked an unbiased, collective voice," noted publisher Andrew Fishman. "I am thrilled to be able to provide a public platform where these talented individuals can finally be heard."

 
The publication was designed by Toronto's K9 Design which "spared no expenditure in the realm of aesthetics" according to the magazine.

The West Village media kit states a full-page ad inside the magazine runs for $1,650.

Meanwhile, there are plans to launch another version of the magazine to serve Montreal's Westmount community starting in May; the media kit for that publication states the reach will be more than 10,000 homes/businesses, with an inside full page ad also pegged at $1,650.
