Vita Daily ( is Canada’s premiere lifestyle website, featuring a set of free, savvy e-newsletters in every major city (Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal and French Montreal, plus our Moms & Kids, Vita Weekly and dedicated contest alert editions) targeting educated, affluent women who are starved for time and hungry for information. The site (formerly Vitamin Daily) was founded in 2004 by Sarah Bancroft and Tara Parker Tait. In 2014, current editor-in-chief Noa Nichol helped launch its sister print publication, VITA, distributed primarily via the Globe and Mail on the

West Coast. Today, the company continues to be based in Vancouver, with a team of contributors in each of its city markets. With elevated editorial standards, Vita Daily and VITA have become a go-to source of information for Canadian women. As readership has grown, so has the reach of our newsletters, website and print edition. We’ve worked with some of the world’s biggest brands to create campaigns that are both effective and engaging, while continuing to champion local artisans and retailers. Our ultimate aim: to be in the inbox (and hands) of every Canadian gal who wants to be in the know. Join us, won’t you?

I consider Vita Daily to be my real vitamin for the day. And, since we travel across Western Canada for work, it’s always great to read something about the current city we are in. I read it every morning with my coffee. I say it’s Canada’s version of Refinery29! SUBS CR I B E R S U RV E Y

T hree years and several-dozen issues ago, current editor-in-chief Noa Nichol helped to launch Vita Daily’s sister print edition, VITA—a monthly magazine that’s distributed to 25,000 readers throughout Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia, as an insert in the Globe and Mail, Business in Vancouver and the North Shore News. VITA is also available, from the first Saturday of each month, in four strategically placed boxes (dressed up in designer wrap) along Vancouver’s high-end “style mile,” Alberni Street.

♥ At a time when print publications are on the decline, VITA is thriving. While the aim of the magazine is aspirational, VITA includes, on a monthly basis, a mix of “high-low” content our readers can relate to, laid out, with a theme in mind, to read like a story from beginning to end. Additionally, our mandate is to promote, as much and wherever possible, brands, retailers and service providers who are local and Canadian; we include, for instance, co-ordinates for actual brickand-mortar boutiques in and around Vancouver and Victoria to encourage VITA readers to hit the streets of these gorgeous cities and shop in store. All in all, VITA magazine, in stunning full-colour print, is the perfect complement to and extension of our digital storytelling work on

The Perfect Blend Blending print and digital advertising into comprehensive and robust campaigns strengthens your brand’s touch points with our audience, engenders receptivity to ads, generates trust and loyalty and, ultimately, persuades our style-savvy readers to act.

OUR EDITORIAL TEAM NOA NICHOL • Editor-in-Chief Noa started writing and editing in her early 20s at a gardening magazine where she learned that a) she doesn’t have a green thumb and b) she loves to play with words. A Ryerson University journalism grad, she’s edited everything from travel glossies to shopping guides, business weeklies to industry mags. In addition to her real-life two-year-old daughter, Noa considers Vita Daily and VITA, which she helped launch, to be her babies—pride, joy and all.

MADISON HOPE Creative Director

Madison is an art director and interior stylist—all things design are right up her alley! After graduating from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, she worked as a creative director at Homes & Living magazine, where she discovered how strong her passion for editorial work truly was. Although she currently manages the brand at Urban Barn on a daily basis, VITA is, by far, her favourite monthly “art” project.

RACHEL JOHNSTON Assistant Editor

Prairie girl at heart, Rachel was raised on a farm in Saskatchewan with most days spent scrawling in her journal or with her nose in a Nancy Drew book, trying to avoid chores. After finishing school in B.C., she pursued event planning and, later, TV production before studying journalism at Simon Fraser University. Now a proud Vancouverite, she is also a freelance lifestyle writer with a focus on travel, health and beauty.

Love your reviews of products, events and personal accounts of travel. You ladies are fabulous, entertaining and witty. I know more about my city and fun spots to shop, dine, etc., than ever before.
