Administrative history

The Tri-Cities Now (originally the Coquitlam Now and at some points referred to simply as The Now) was first published in 1984. During the first years of its publication, it was published by Bob Moody under the company Now Newspapers Ltd and during the early years it is referred to as an independent community newspaper. By 2001, Now Newspapers Ltd. was listed as a division of the Lower Mainland Publishing Group Inc., a CanWest Company. In 2006, the publisher changed to Coquitlam Now, a division of CanWest Media Works Publications Inc. The newspaper was purchased by Glacier Media Group in 2007 along with several other local newspapers in British Columbia. In 2014, Glacier Media Group purchased the Tri-City News from Black Press and in September, 2015 announced that the Tri-Cities Now would print its final edition on October 1st, 2015.
