About Kerrwil Media

Established in Toronto, Canada in 1964, Kerrwil Media has nurtured its reputation for being the best at what we can 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.

Our founder Jack Kerr gave us our mission. Simply stated he said, “we will be a member of the industry first and publisher second.” This mandate has distanced us from every competitor we have ever 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 publishing community, and a key partner in the industries we serve. He taught us that nothing is as constant as change. We must adapt to market conditions and technology trends and truly understand the impact these have on our readers. That; and taking care of our customers will provide continued growth and a sound reinvestment in all we do.

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

We know what we do drives profitability, creates awareness, and builds brands; and our team of editors, publishers and audience experts stop at nothing to be the resource to the markets we serve.

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

Actively support the industries we serve

Promote ongoing investment in audited circulation

Deliver editorial excellence and authority

Set the benchmark for best practices in publishing

Research, evaluate and share superior market knowledge

Lead the publishing industry in best practices and online technologies

John Kerr
