BookLand Press is a fast-growing Canadian publishing company established in 2006 in Ontario. We publish exceptional Canadian books portraying literary excellence, the great values of our country, and our diverse Canadian society. Our interests range from contemporary poetry to fiction, creative non-fiction, and translations. Fresh, insightful, diverse, multicultural, Canadian — these are some of the words that describe the variety of books that BookLand Press publishes. We are particularly interested in literature that is different, exciting, and awakens us to angles of the world that we have not noticed before.
BookLand Press is one of the few independent publishers in Canada that publishes books not only in English, but also in various Indigenous languages on ongoing basis. We also translate and publish English-language editions of award-winning Canadian French-language books to ensure that culturally significant Canadian titles are available to readers throughout the country in Canada’s both official languages. We believe that books can be one of the most effective ways of sharing important topics for people of different languages and backgrounds.
At BookLand Press, our books and our company are expressions of who we are, the values we hold, and the choices we make to reach our goals. We have claimed our part of the literary landscape by attracting, selecting, publishing, and promoting some of the most exciting and creative Canadian writers and translators of our times. Inspired by the enduring magic and importance of literature, our objective is to create, publish, and promote exceptional books that are instantly recognizable in Canada and around the world for their creativity, spirit, and literary value. We believe it is our responsibility to make every book we publish a book of value and worth.
Inspired by the love of books and Canadian literature, we look forward to continue building a powerful list of high-quality, original titles in English, French, and various Indigenous languages for many years to come.
BookLand Press is a member of the Literary Press Group of Canada.
