    As the magazine approaches its 80th anniversary, a radically different
    look stays true to an overall vision of offering rigorously forward-
    looking insight

    TORONTO, Oct. 18 /CNW/ - Canadian Business magazine has never been afraid
to change. From its origin as a house organ for the Canadian Chamber of
Commerce to today's magazine for the digital age, Canadian Business has
consistently embraced the challenge of staying ahead of the expectations of
its readers. Knowing that today's business decision-makers operate in an
information-saturated environment, the team at Canadian Business took the last
10 months to conduct reader research and to think deeply about the unique
value the magazine offers.
    The result is a bold new look that is both radically different in
appearance and architecture but stays true to its mission of providing unique,
relentlessly forward-looking and valuable insights into the companies,
personalities and events that matter to business people. The newly redesigned
Canadian Business, featuring the annual MBA Guide, arrives on newsstands
across the country starting today. For more information about the annual MBA
guide please see press release titled "Canadian Business' 16th-annual MBA
Guide Unveiled" posted 8:30 a.m. at
    "Our research revealed what we already suspected," says editor
Joe Chidley. "A smart, longer-format, trusted source of insight like Canadian
Business magazine is extremely valuable to our readers. We excel in offering
the in-depth content that business leaders are looking for and our redesign
reflects that."Highlights of the new Canadian Business:
