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 2024. 

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

In the most recent mandate letter from the Prime Minister, the Minister of Canadian Heritage was directed to increase key writing and publishing programs, including increasing the Canada Book Fund budget by 50% in the 2022-23 fiscal year. This mandate letter commitment has not been fulfilled by the government during the last two federal budgets.

The Government must not let down the book publishing industry yet again.

We are asking for your support to help ensure that the government fulfills this commitment to the publishing sector in Budget 2024. Please take 30 seconds to send a letter to your MP to help maintain a thriving Canadian publishing ecosystem. Make your voice heard!
