Boating Industry Canada's Newsweek

NEW LOOK - NEW INFORMATION - NEW FEATURES

The team here at Boating Industry Canada welcomes you to the new look for Boating Industry Canada's News Week weekly newsletter!

This newsletter also marks the ending of the Print Magazine Boating Industry Canada. After 10+ solid years of our printed edition, the response to our website and Boating Industry Canada News Week has been overwhelming. The roots of our company were founded in print in 1964 so its with a mixed emotion we make this decision. But to be honest with ourselves the world is changing too, immediacy of information, and content, our business model is evolving too with our decision to reinvest our print and postage expense into more engaging, more informative and more insight for the Canadian recreational boating professional. And too, we are reacting to you as readers who wanted a forum to better see the new products, and the supplier messaging which is a critical component of a good B2B platform like Boating Industry Canada.

If you want more information fast look below every ad and see the REQUEST MORE INFORMATION bar .. click here and we will get the advertiser to connect directly and quickly with you. Another unique feature that our team developed to keep the link between the boating industry.

We are stepping up our game (again!) and from this day onward, there will be even more valuable information coming to you every week.

The goal of News Week, since it began over 10 years ago, was to give the boating industry in Canada a weekly source of must have information, Canadian insight and views, impact and analysis. We are adding weekly features, profiles, industry stock reports, indexes and research stats that are not available anywhere else. Every Tuesday from one source.

We encourage you to share and let your colleagues know about the NEW Boating Industry Canada News Week and ensure have all your team subscribe and keep them in the loop and ahead of the curve on Canada's marine industry news. News Week is the "go to" online resource for those people who are the core of the recreational boating industry.

Today marks a new chapter in Canadian recreational boating industry information. We welcome your input and ideas - email me and tell us what you think about the new News Week and please send us your news too!
