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:
