Membership in the Toronto Marine Historical Society provides a subscription to the journal, Scanner,  now in its 41st year.  Scanner is published eight times during the membership year which runs from October 1 to September 30.  It keeps members up to date on Society affairs.  The first section is a brief digest of news events significant to the ongoing historical record of Great Lakes shipping.  Each issue is anchored by a major research piece entitled Ship of the MonthRecent ships of the month have been Cape Breton Miner, Kearsarge, R. Bruce Angus,  Yukondoc and C.C.G.S. Grenville.  The magazine concludes with a special Great Lake Memories section that is a reproduction of a genuine historical artifact, frequently a brochure from the days of Great Lakes passenger steamships.
