The More Canada report (December 2018) highlighted an issue that had escaped public notice: the slow, steady decline over 10-12 years, in Canadians reading Canadian books.
Public discussion of this issue is now underway. New data has come to light and new studies have been released. Debate is on about how to encourage discovery, awareness and reading of Canadian books by Canadians.
There’s a rich and diverse range of Canadian books being written and published across the country every year.
On this site you can find a constantly-updated collection of reports, research documents, media comments and policy proposals addressing this issue.
