Boating Industry Canada's electronic newsletter, Newsweek and webiste are part of the marine titles of Kerrwil Publications Limited. Boating Industry Canada's bi-weekly newsletter and website are the primary sources for current boating industry news, marine products, boat reviews and events.

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 the 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 Chairmen. 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:

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

Kerrwil is your market resource.

Whether on a boat, motorcycle, UTV or golf cart, stereos should sound as rich and clear as in a premium automobile—and be as technologically advanced.

It is an all in one unit, meaning there is no separate black box to install.
