Magazines Canada announces merger with Canadian Business Media Association

Speaking at the recent Magazines Canada Business Media Leadership Summit, CBMA chair John Kerr, president and CEO of Kerrwil Publications, said: “With the marketplace and regulatory challenges faced by all magazine media publishers today, the CBMA Board agreed unanimously that bringing together one very strong association is absolutely vital at this juncture.”

Magazines Canada chair Douglas Knight, president of St. Joseph Media, said: “We are delighted to welcome our CBMA colleagues to Magazines Canada. Working together strengthens our voice as we address common issues that affect the magazine industry as a whole. We will also be better positioned to more effectively leverage our resources to focus on the unique needs of distinct sectors of the industry, be they business, cultural, regional or consumer.”

Over the coming months, both association boards will direct a transition process to completion and will release more information to their respective memberships as the process evolves.
