The Fairview Post serves a population of about 10,000 in the town of Fairview, from the Dunvegan Bridge to the BC border, all the way to Grimshaw. We serve the Municipal District of Fairview including the Hamlets of Bluesky and Whitelaw, Clear Hills County including the Village of Hines Creek and Hamlet of Worsley, and Cleardale, the Municipal District of Peace including Berwyn and Brownvale. The paper started weekly publication in 1940 and has survived several changes of ownership, two fires and not a few moves. It began as an independent paper, then became part of Bowes Publishing (along with the Peace River Record Gazette, Grande Prairie Daily Herald Tribune and Peace Country Sun), was eventually bought up by Sun Media and then by Postmedia The community is largely agricultural but also depends on the oil and gas industry and to a lesser extent, on forestry. We are home to GPRC Fairview College Campus, which began life as Fairview School of Agriculture and Home Economics, was partnered first with NAIT and then later with Grande Prairie Regional College when that was deemed a better fit. The college is known to motorcyclists for its Harley Davidson Technician Program and Motorcycle Technician Program, among animal lovers for its Animal Health Technician Program, but also has welding, carpentry, pipe-fitting and power engineering among its programs. The college has a large presence in the community as does Peace River School Division (EE Oliver Elementary School and Fairview High School) and to a slightly lesser extent, Grande Prairie Catholic School Division (St. Thomas More School (K-12)). In the last few years, the town and MD partnered to form the Heart of the Peace Economic Development Committee, working together with representatives from the community to bring more business and more residents to the area.

Our paper’s reputation is founded on serving up local news every week, and now does it with an editorial staff of one. Our website, www.fairviewpost.com is updated weekly for local news and we have a fairly active Facebook page, with a less active presence on Twitter. We are happy to cover all local events, from birthday parties to hockey tournaments, baseball games, equestrian events, agricultural events and council meetings.
