Our Vision

T7X magazine is committed to delivering compelling content about the people, stories and issues that make Spruce Grove not only a Top10 city to live in but also a dynamic community to belong to. Although our strongest focus is on Spruce Grove, 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. T7X—your city, your magazine.

Rob Lightfoot

Publisher & President

Welcome to T7X magazine. We’ve been waiting for you!

My name is Rob Lightfoot, and I’m the publisher and president of T7X Publishing Inc. T7X is part of identity. It has been a part of our community long before we even gave it thought.

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.
