About Us


About Canadian Scholars

Canadian Scholars has more than 35 years of experience providing instructors and students in higher education with textbooks and supplementary materials of outstanding quality and value. We provide a unique and independent voice for a wide range of academic and political perspectives that may not be heard within a large multinational or university press. We pride ourselves on publishing books that make a genuine and lasting contribution to the evolution of a wide variety of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

Women’s Press

Founded in 1972, Women’s Press has played an integral role in the proliferation of feminist writing in Canada. Committed to conserving a space in higher education devoted to gender, sexuality, and women’s studies, we pride ourselves on the quality of our authors and our contributions to the field of feminist scholarship.

Land Acknowledgement

We wish to acknowledge the land on which the Toronto office of Canadian Scholars operates. Since time immemorial, this land has been the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat. Toronto is under the Dish with One Spoon treaty, in which all Indigenous, First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people, along with all newcomers to Turtle Island, have been invited to share and protect the land in the spirit of peace, friendship, and respect.

The members of our office who operate from the west coast wish to acknowledge the land on which they live and work. We are grateful they are able to work, learn, and collaborate on the traditional territory of the Katzie First Nation, as well as the traditional unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

We wish to promote resources such as Native-Land and Whose.Land which allow Indigenous communities to represent their histories, languages, and culture in their own words; as well as challenge non-Indigenous settlers to engage in meaningful learning and reflection on the lands they inhabit, the history of colonialism across Turtle Island, and the path to building a better future together.


Praise for Canadian Scholars

What others are saying about us.
text quotes
“Canadian Scholars has always been a friend to me. A solid publication record with titles both informative and provocative has made it easy to adopt Canadian Scholars books for courses over the years. Better still, Canadian Scholars is small enough to provide prompt and courteous service when book orders or desk copies need to be rushed through by ‘yesterday.’ Best of all, I’ve enjoyed dealing with sales associates and book representatives who have proven unfailingly helpful and friendly.”
