Independent booksellers are an invaluable part of Canadian culture and our literary ecosystem. In cities and towns across Canada, independent bookstores are intrinsic to the fabric of their communities, conveners of important conversations, and contributors to vibrant local economies.
The Canadian Independent Booksellers’ Association (CIBA) offers programs and services to Canadian independent booksellers and advocates to support the strengthening of the independent bookselling sector.
To support different organizations and partners across the sector, we offer a variety of ways to join or partner with CIBA:
Canadian Independent Bookseller Membership
For Canadian independent booksellers looking to access support, professional development, resources, networking opportunities, timely news and updates, and a strong united voice on the issues that matter most to your business.
For Canadian or international book industry associations who want to develop and maintain connections with Canadian booksellers, affiliated bookselling and publishing organizations, and publishers and book industry professionals.
