Support for Publishers: Business Development – Canada Book Fund

From: Canadian Heritage

The Support for Publishers component of the Canada Book Fund (CBF) helps to ensure the sustainable production and marketing of Canadian-authored books by offsetting the high costs of publishing in Canada and building the capacity and competitiveness of the sector. The Business Development sub-component provides assistance to publishers for internship projects and business planning projects:

  • Internships: Publishing and technology internships provide valuable training for new Canadian book industry professionals, who in turn accomplish useful work that the firm might not otherwise have had the resources to carry out.
  • Business planning: Business planning projects help recipients develop strategic approaches to improving their business activities and competitiveness.
