Canada Book Fund

The Canada Book Fund (CBF) ensures access to a diverse range of Canadian-authored books nationally and internationally, by fostering a strong book industry that publishes and markets Canadian-authored books.

The CBF has two streams – Support for Organizations and Support for Publishers (with two components). The CBF is also currently accepting applications for projects starting in 2019-20 through the Accessible Digital Books initiative. 

Accessible Digital Books New!

The CBF is inviting applications for projects for the first phase of a five-year initiative to support the sustainable production and distribution of accessible digital books by Canadian independent publishers. The first phase of the initiative will focus on engaging publishers, assessing industry needs, building knowledge, developing best practices and establishing industry standards.

This support is available to both organizations and publishers in the book publishing industry:

Support for Organizations

The CBF's Support for Organizations stream contributes to the marketing and promotion of Canadian-authored books, and strengthens the infrastructure and efficiency of the Canadian book industry through professional development, internships and technology projects.
