Our vision is to be an online centre for community action in the Comox Valley. We spotlight community initiatives and events, encourage discussion, and provide a range of news and other information. Readers may leave comments on any posting.
All news items for posting must be sent to editor at tidechange.ca. A featured image is welcome. Contact information must be provided. Articles are posted in the order in which they are received. Video/audio files/links are also welcome. Editorial/news commentary is posted at the Chief Editor’s discretion.
The newsletter is sent out automatically to subscribers weekly. News and other postings will appear most recent first. Subscription to the newsletter is free. Subscribers who wish to change their email must first unsubscribe under their old email, using the option provided at the bottom of the newsletter, then subscribe with their new one.
Listings are free of charge. To be listed as a Community Group, an organization must be local (Comox Valley) and non-profit. Listing requires the name of a contact person, phone number and email address. A logo and website URL are also required if a group wishes to be added to the icon area of the Community Groups page.

We believe that a healthy democracy can only survive when its citizens debate the critical issues of the day. This means we must have an on-going dialogue where we share our thoughts with our fellow citizens.
TideChange.ca is committed to encouraging and facilitating that dialogue.
TideChange.ca (TC) is a project of a Comox Valley non-profit society called, World Community Development Education Society (WCDES), known locally as World Community.
