What is a good advertising/graphic design magazine to subscribe to?

I am a year one design student, and my major is advertising. So I am learning graphic design and advertising in one setting. As a young grasshopper, I am constantly searching for relevant news, information, tips, and ideas to help me learn.

I've been eyeing IDPURE Magazine (Swiss), and Creative Review. A one year subscription to IDPURE, however, is only 4 issues. Is there a different magazine that will suit my needs? I know of Computer Arts, but I don't want a magazine focused heavily on tutorials that I could find elsewhere online. I am shifting more towards Advertising, with a graphic design influence, if that makes sense.

Could anyone offer any advice?

PS - I am in Canada, and there are no good American/Canadian advertising/graphic design magazines from what I hear.
