Our Newspaper

The VCSA Insider is an online article-base that is run by students of Vanier College. Our mission is to inform and entertain the population, while giving students a platform in which to express themselves and their opinions. Every article in our printed issues can be easily accessed through this site!

We publish on a regular basis and are always looking to expand our team of dynamic and talented students. Our team welcomes a diversity of opinion (no matter how controversial) and thought, although prioritizing coverage of environmental news.

Students interested in joining The Insider‘s news team might think of submitting work on any of the following subjects:


  • Events and Issues within the Vanier Community
  • Local festivities or opportunities
  • Politics or culture on any scale (Regional, Provincial, Federal, etc.)
  • Celebrities or heroes (Interviews)
  • Scientific revelations in physics, psychology, or the environmental sciences


Swing by our office at D-168 if you have questions, a story, or are in need of a helping hand.

We look forward to reading your work (at least India does)!
