Spruce up your marketing — advertise with us
SPRUCE informs and guides the buying decisions of Greater Victoria and Peninsula residents who have the means to build, renovate or remodel their homes and are looking for information from a trusted source in local publishing.
Page One Publishing’s flagship home and design magazine has grown from one issue at its launch in 2016 to two the next, and now three issues per year — a growth that’s been fueled by reader and advertiser demand.

The SPRUCE advertising team is 100% focused on customer service and solutions, and we’re committed to working with our clients to attain the best reach and impact for their advertising campaigns.
“Building on Vancouver Island presents unique challenges and opportunities. Our readers want local information and resources they can’t find anywhere else, and our goal is to consistently inspire with our high-standard original content.” — Athena McKenzie, Editor
