Electrical Industry News Week is published by Kerrwil Publications Limited and sponsored by Electro-Federation Canada’s Electrical Council. Published weekly, Electrical Industry reports news, technical developments, how-to’s, and practical methods and solutions.

electricalindustry.ca is the “go-to” online resource for electrical contractors, plant electrical personnel, electrical consulting engineers and electrical distributors, for industry news, product sourcing and technical know-how… all from a Canadian perspective.

electricalindustry.ca’s editorial team provides the right content within the right context. Our team will research prevalent issues in the Canadian market and provide informative overviews to better update your organizations and your customers’ product choice and direction. We take supplier content and ensure it is current, accurate and targeted to our audience’s needs.

Our Sponsor
Electro-Federation Canada’s Electrical Council brings the overview and industry rapport that represents electrical equipment manufacturers and suppliers, electrical distributors and members of the Canadian electrical manufacturers’ representative association. The Council will continually guide and direct the team.

Our Publisher Kerrwil Publications Limited is celebrating 50 years of electrical industry involvement in 2014, with family ties spanning 70 years, with or on behalf of the electrical industry in Canada. Kerrwil has been recognized as a leading proponent of best industry practice in publishing through its involvement in Magazines Canada and Canadian Business Press.

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 Canada’s oldest privately held publishing company.

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, which 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 at what we do. Understanding and meeting our readers’ and advertisers’ expectations, and providing new methods and solutions that generate above average returns, are 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 online that dramatically separate us from the competition. Today, we remain committed to the principles that have brought us this far:
