About Dunbar Life Magazine

The Team Behind It All

Palla Media is the publisher of Steveston Insider, Dunbar Life and Kerrisdale Insider magazines. These three unique and well-loved community publications promote local shopping and events. Readers feel a strong sense of connection and community pride through engaging and informative stories and vibrant photography that capture the essence of their neighbourhood. They learn about local business owners and discover where to eat, shop and find nearby services. The magazines serve as a village voice and are a perfect resource for visitors to explore the area and find out the inside scoop. Community members eagerly anticipate finding the latest issue in their mailbox and hold on to them as keepsakes.

In addition to the print magazines, the companion websites are valuable reference tools to find the most accurate and up to date business directories, advertising, maps and local events. Palla media also realizes the importance of social media in helping promote small businesses, and regularly posts fun and informative updates. Pallla Media is an independent and locally owned business, which has been in operation since 2007.
