Canadian Business relaunches with a print and digital redesign—and a new focus on challenging the status quo

Canadian Business is marking a new chapter in its 95-year history with its most ambitious pivot yet.

Canadian Business is marking a new chapter in its 95-year history with its most ambitious pivot yet. The print edition will return on October 4 with a new focus, a new design and interviews and features on influential Canadian disruptors and entrepreneurs. A relaunch of canadianbusiness.com debuts that same week. Subscribers of both Toronto Life and Maclean’s will be receiving the quarterly magazine in their mailboxes.

Led by Editor-in-Chief Charlotte Herrold with creative direction from the award-winning design firm Studio Wyse, the new Canadian Business is about analyzing the success of innovative leaders who are changing Canada for the better. “Increasingly business executives and founders are not what we previously considered to be the traditional C-Suite norm,” says Herrold. “Today they represent the gamut of industries. They’re young, they’re diverse, they’re digital first. Canadian Business gives these leaders—and those who want to learn from them—the resources, networking opportunities and inspiration to innovate, connect and continue to challenge the status quo.”
