ACP welcomes the Government of Canada’s commitment to strong, domestic creative industries
The Association of Canadian Publishers (ACP) is pleased to see initiatives related to book publishing within the Government of Canada’s Creative Canada Policy Framework, which was released by Minister of Canadian Heritage Mélanie Joly last week. Support for an effective and well-functioning copyright regime and continued support for the marketing and distribution of Canadian books through the Canada Book Fund (CBF) are among the commitments made by the Minister. In addition, the implementation of the Creative Export Strategy, with $125 million committed over five years, will bring Canadian culture to audiences around the world. Canadian publishers welcome this investment and look forward to expanding their presence in international markets, and to showcasing the work of Canadian writers on the world stage. This will be a focus at the 2020 Frankfurt Book Fair, where Canada will be Guest of Honour.
