Resources for Publishers, Booksellers and Wholesalers

For 35 years, the CCBC has been actively promoting the reading, writing and illustrating of Canadian books to teachers, librarians, booksellers and parents.

Through our publications, such as Best Books for Kids & Teens and Canadian Children's Book News, we help connect your books with young readers across the nation.

Our book awards mark and reward excellence in the field of writing and illustrating. These awards not only reward the creators, but publishers, too and they enhance opportunities to inform readers of books they might otherwise not have encountered.

Looking for new talent? Contact us to be added to our listing of Canadian Children's Book Publishers Accepting Unsolicited Manuscripts and/or Artwork.

Our online resources include links to publishers' sites, a complete list of Canadian children's book awards, and submissions guidelines to our seven book awards.

And don't forget TD Canadian Children's Book Week, Canada's single most important celebration of books and reading, which tours authors, illustrators and storytellers across the country.
