TAKE 5 is central Vancouver Island's most-read magazine. Covering the communities between South Nanaimo, Ladysmith and Chemainus, TAKE 5 is the number-one source for information about this area. Established in 1997 and voted Business of the Year twice, TAKE 5 covers arts, wildlife, boating, people, health, homes, dining, wine, and local news and events. If it's happening here, we'll be there. TAKE 5 is as eclectic and adventurous as the people who live and work in mid Vancouver Island.
