Our Vision

T8N magazine is committed to delivering compelling content about the people, stories and issues that make St. Albert not only a Top10 city to live in but also a dynamic community to belong to. Although our strongest focus is on St. Albert, we also look outward to explore the trends and global issues that capture our readers’ imaginations and shape their perceptions.

In creating this publication, we’ve also become a home where writers, photographers and other artists can share ideas, start conversations and build communities. T8N—your city, your magazine.

Rob Lightfoot

Publisher & President

Welcome to T8N magazine. We’ve been waiting for you!

My name is Rob Lightfoot, and I’m the publisher and president of T8N Publishing Inc. Having lived in St. Albert all but six years of my life, I feel like our T8N postal code is a part of my identity.

It says home to me. And a home is exactly what I hope this magazine will be. A home for ideas, a home for conversations, a place to invite people in—a place for you.
