Staring next week, Ladysmith Chemainus Chronicle readers won’t have to stop their subscriptions when they travel — they can keep up with all the news online.

The Chronicle will begin charging for premium online content Dec. 13, joining a growing industry trend.

Starting Dec. 13, print subscribers can go to to sign up for digital access as part of their print subscription.

Subscribers to our print edition will receive full access to premium online content included in the cost of their paid subscription. That will allow access to all website content, including our e-edition, a digital replica of the print edition.

New clients can subscribe to an all-access package, which includes the print edition and premium online content.

Subscribers will enjoy privileges that include the ability to forward stories via e-mail or social media accounts, participate in online discussions and access all content.

Non-subscribers still will have free digital access to limited areas, such as provincial news, our website’s front page and section fronts, blogs, classifieds and obituaries. When breaking news occurs locally, that too will be available at no charge.

We will publish details about the premium content plan and how it will work in our Dec. 13 paper.
