Independent bookstores are an invaluable part of Canadian culture. In cities and towns across Canada, these stores are intrinsic to the fabric of their communities, conveners of important conversations, and contributors to vibrant local economies. CIBA offers programs and services to Canadian independent booksellers and advocates to support the sector overall.
