Increase the Canada Book Fund - ensure the government keeps its promise!

The Association of Canadian Publishers (ACP), in partnership with l’Association nationale des éditeurs de livres (ANEL), has launched a letter writing campaign to urge the government to fulfill this commitment to the publishing sector in Budget 2023. 

Calling all book lovers, publishing professionals, and champions of Canadian writing: we need your help!

In December 2021, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau directed Hon. Pablo Rodriguez, Minister of Canadian Heritage, to increase the budgets of key writing and publishing programs, including the Canada Book Fund (CBF), in the 2022-23 fiscal year. This commitment has not yet been fulfilled. Book publishers can no longer be left behind.

We are asking for your support to help ensure that the government fulfills this commitment to the publishing sector in Budget 2023. Please take 30 seconds to send a letter to your MP to help maintain a thriving Canadian publishing ecosystem. Make your voice heard!
