BLACK CANADIAN STUDENTS // Post-Secondary Publishing & Black Studies Programs in Canada

PUBLISHING PROGRAMS // Publishing is defined as the business of preparing and presenting books and other materials for sale. The process of publishing involves making information available to the public through printed or digital methods.

Publishers work to promote authors, books, and creative materials, and they oversee the editing and production of products in alignment with the company's vision.

We appreciate the publishing industry and the ability to conceptualize, create, and communicate valuable stories and experiences--particularly cultural narratives. We look forward to seeing this Canadian industry grow, diversify, and expand to include voices representing all experiences!
