Trade Publishers’ Group

The Trade Publishers’ Group deals with issues relevant to the publishing and distribution of general interest adult and children’s material such as the changing retail climate, and provincial and federal legislation that impacts members’ firms and/or their customers. We act as a liaison between the bookselling and library communities, their respective national and regional associations, and allied organizations to promote and protect the interests of our members.

Gathering and disseminating information useful to member firms is also an important function of the Group. In addition, the Group provides detailed membership statistics on a monthly basis.
