A group of Juan de Fuca residents has formed a non-profit society to launch a news and advertising publication for the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area to provide a forum for our rural communities to share news, exchange ideas and develop a sense of community. The publication will give businesses within and outside the electoral area an opportunity to promote their products and services and reach potential customers. We hope to provide current information about the region and its services for the many tourists who visit the area. Our goal is to protect, preserve and enhance rural life.
