Book Publishers Association of Alberta

The Book Publishers Association of Alberta was founded in 1975 to support the development of a thriving provincial publishing industry, away from Canada’s traditional book publishing centres. One of the strongest communities of regional publishers in North America today, the BPAA counts 29 member companies, most of which are owned and operated in Alberta.
