About the Canadian Digital Library Collection

The Canadian Digital Library Collection is a pilot program designed to empower librarians to discover Canadian ebooks from independent publishers across the nation. The heart of our initiative is a commitment to support and showcase the diverse literary landscape of Canada while providing librarians with valuable tools to enhance their selection process. Our mission is to facilitate easy access to high-quality Canadian content while giving librarians the tools they need to make informed decisions tailored to their patrons.

The collection is your gateway to a vast and vibrant literary landscape. Join us on our journey to connect readers with the stories that make our nation truly unique.
