Plastics in Canada has now been merged with Canadian Plastics magazine.

The decision comes on the heels of Business Information Group, which owns Canadian Plastics magazine, purchasing 15 trade publications and digital brands from Rogers Publishing Limited in May 2011, including the Plastics in Canada e-newsletter.

As of September 1, subscribers to the Plastics in Canada e-newsletter are being served instead with the Canadian Plastics weekly e-newsletter.

Canadian Plastics, first published in August 1943, now continues as the only magazine serving Canada’s plastics industry. “We’re 68 years young and still going strong,” said Judith Nancekivell, publisher of Canadian Plastics. “Over the past decade, we’ve added a web site, e-newsletter and news videos, so that we may serve our readers with both print and digital media. We welcome our new colleagues from Rogers, and are working with them to bring you expanded news coverage where our expertise overlaps.”
