Who we are
Island Buyers was established in 2016 with the acquisition of the Island Dealers publication and website, also formerly known as Island Car Buyer.
We are now restructuring and expanding our media operations to become the leading print and online portal for advertisers to reach new immigrants as well as local buyers of luxury automobiles, homes, and investment products.
VI Weekly, which is published in Mandarin every second Wednesday, is the Island's only local newspaper serving the Chinese community in their own language, while our local vendor showcase, IslandBuyers.ca, provides a bilingual directory of products and services to all residents of Vancouver Island.
Our newest print publication, Island Buyers' Choice, is a bilingual directory of local Nanaimo businesses which is being distributed free of charge to new home buyers and the Mandarin speaking community in our home city. It focuses on reputable local merchants whose products and services are of value to new and established city residents alike.
