About the Kenneth R. Wilson awards
The 2012 Kenneth R. Wilson Awards are co-produced by the Canadian Business Press and Magazines Canada. This partnership provides a broader, deeper and more truly national platform for the celebration of bilingual excellence in Canada’s Business Press.
Regarded as one of Canada’s top business writers, Kenneth R. Wilson wrote with clarity and authority. His opinions were widely sought and respected. In spite of his busy career, he was active in a number of editor and journalist associations. A tragic airplane crash ended his distinguished career in January, 1952. He was 47 years old. It is the memory of Kenneth R. Wilson, his example and his achievements in business press journalism that we honour each year with these awards.
