In these times of high costs of livings, all family members can contribute – even the kids.

The Nanaimo News Bulletin is always looking for paper carriers.

Delivering our community newspaper once a week is an opportunity for children to get fresh air and exercise, work experience and earn some money. Kids can gain a sense of responsibility and pride knowing they’re delivering local news and information to their neighbours’ doorsteps.

“They come from all walks of life to bring the world to your doorstep. We thank our distributors and newspaper carriers for their service and dedication to our customers,” noted a statement from News Media Canada.

Most paper routes take about an hour once a week, and the News Bulletin provides supplies and training. Payment depends on the number of papers on the route. Newspapers are delivered right to a carrier’s door and there is no need to insert flyers. Papers can be delivered before or after school on Wednesdays.

The Metral, Brickyard and Townsite areas are the neighbourhoods most in need of paper carriers, but with school back in session, routes are becoming available in other parts of the city, as well.

If anyone in the family is interested in being a paper carrier, call the News Bulletin’s circulation department at 250-734-4605, e-mail or apply online at
