Every young Canadian should have access to Canadian books. Help make this a priority.

The I Read Canadian Fund supports getting new, Canadian books into the hands of young people across the country. Additionally, this fund supports the expansion of the children’s choice reading, the Forest of Reading into Indigenous, rural and priority communities, and most importantly the delivery of NEW books to young people. Let’s get kids excited about reading for fun!
