The Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC) is a national, not-for-profit organization, founded in 1976. We are dedicated to encouraging, promoting and supporting the reading, writing and illustrating of Canadian books for young readers. Our programs and publications offer a wide range of resources to anyone who is interested in quality reading for children and teens.
With book collections and extensive resources in five cities across Canada, the CCBC is a treasure-trove for anyone interested in Canadian books for young readers. Through our publications and programs (such as the quarterly magazine, Canadian Children’s Book News and the annual TD Canadian Children’s Book Week), the CCBC actively promotes Canadian books and brings their readers and creators together.
