Backbone magazine, launched in January 2001, is one of Canada's largest and most successful business magazines.
Our focus is on using technology to enhance everyday business processes and our mandate is to provide practical and actionable advice that will help readers run their businesses today and prepare for tomorrow.
In addition, we examine larger issues such as national competitiveness, the environment and Canada's educational and investment communities. At Backbone we recognize that the interests of our readers extend beyond the boardroom so we also provide lifestyle content on vacation planning, home design, business travel and the purchase of personal electronics.
Our Web site, Backbonemag.com, offers news, content from the print magazine, an events calendar, blog and Twitter content, industry links and press releases covering all of North America’s significant companies. The Web site also facilitates interaction with our readers.
