Voir is a francophone alternative weekly newspaper in Montreal, Quebec, published by Communications Voir. In 2013, the newspaper dropped from weekly to biweekly publication.
Voir was founded by Pierre Paquet in November 1986.
The newspaper also formerly published local editions in Quebec City, Saguenay/Alma, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières and Gatineau. They published a mix of locally oriented news and advertisement and listings, as well as chainwide common content published by all the editions.
Communications Voir ceased publication of these regional editions in 2012 and 2013, retaining regionally-focused content only on the publication's website.
Supplements and special sections
- Voir carries since 2003 a weekly lifestyle supplement Voir la Vie / Voir la Ville containing amongst other restaurant reviews, travel and real estate / decoration.
- It also carries a special musical section entitled Bang Bang (earlier a separate periodical paper) but now incorporated within Voir.
- Voir also had a graphic design / typography supplement, but that section was discontinued later.
"Voir Communication", the papers' publisher, also published the now-defunct anglophone alternative weeklies Hour in Montreal and XPress in Ottawa.
