Sentinel digital readers rise as paperless subscribers top 1,100
The number of readers of the digital edition of the Salish Sea Sentinel are on the rise.
Thousands of people around the Salish Sea read paper copies of the magazine every month that they get at First Nation offices, on BC Ferries and other locations. But more than 1,100 are going paperless.
Take, for example, a recent email from Jodi Mucha, who is the executive director of the BC Healthy Communities Society in Victoria. She wrote: “We have been receiving your Salish Sea Sentinel for the past several years. It is a great publication. “I am writing to ask if you could remove us from your subscription list specifically for the hardcopy mail out that we regularly receive. We would prefer to read up on your updates online and are doing our best to become paperless. We understand that many companies are choosing to go paperless within this new world of technology. Not only is it a way to help the environment but also to make information accessible to others. Companies similar to Filecenter help to ensure that this is possible for all businesses, including ours and we would like to extend that to our readership.
“We will continue to read your website and other communications on line and repost through our social media channels when possible.”
Then there are all the teachers at École Mary Hill elementary school in Port Coquitlam, a duel English and French Immersion institution.
Robyn Weisner wrote the following to us: “I sent the web-link to the Salish Sea Sentinel subscription page to the school principal. She is going to encourage each teacher to sign up individually so they can receive the digital magazine directly to their inboxes.
She thinks it would be a great resource for them as there is more emphasis on incorporating First Nations’ knowledge and information into classroom activities.”
Thank you to both Jodi and Robyn. If you would like to do likewise, go to salishseasentinel.ca and click on the E-Edition link at the top of the page to keep informed about all the good things happening in the nations of Naut’sa mawt Tribal Council.
