Canadian Electrical Industry News Week

Electrical Industry Newsweek and Canadian Electrical Wholesaler are published by Kerrwil with the support of The Electrical Council, Electro-Federation Canada.

Founded in May 1964 By J.W. Kerr, Jim Wilson, President of Canada Electric and James Wilson President of the Canadian Electrical Contractors Association, Kerrwil Publications Limited has grown into the oldest privately held publishing company in Canada.

Being a member of the industry first and publisher second has separated us from every competitor we have had. Leading the industry, challenging the status quo and building with a focused eye on the future is what has made Kerrwil a well-established and respected name in Canadian publishing community.

Kerrwil has been active in many industry associations including the Canadian Business Press – where both J.W. (Jack) Kerr and John Kerr served as Chairman. Kerrwil is an active member today with the Canadian Business Press, Magazines Canada, BPA Worldwide, and the Canadian Circulations Audit Board.

Kerrwil has nurtured its reputation for being the best we can at what we do. Understanding and meeting our advertisers’ expectations and providing new methods and solutions that generate above average returns is what we do in print, online, and on site.

While our mandate is to serve the industry first, decades of publishing expertise has led to establishing best practices in publishing in print and on line that dramatically separate us from the competition.

Today, we remain committed to the principles that have brought us this far:

  1. Ongoing investment in audited circulation
  2. Delivering editorial excellence and authority
  3. Actively support the industries we serve
  4. Setting the benchmark for best practices in publishing
  5. Researching, evaluating and sharing superior market knowledge

Kerrwil is your market resource.
