Established in 1972, Dundurn Press is one of Canada’s largest and leading independent trade publishers. With over 2,300 books in print, Dundurn Press is recognized for producing high quality, award-winning books across multiple genres. We publish books that reflect the world, satisfy curiosity, enlighten, and entertain. We seek to amplify and elevate exceptional Canadian voices to the world, particularly those that have not yet been discovered or have been previously underrepresented in trade publishing. We also aim to make Dundurn Press a home for all readers and writers in our community as we signal a new era for the press by opening a welcoming storefront space in Leslieville, Toronto in 2021 (opening day TBA). We publish across numerous genres, from literary and genre fiction, to lifestyle, memoir and biography, history and public policy, and middle-grade and teen fiction.
Our books have won and been nominated for many prestigious awards, including the Donner Prize, LAMBDA Literary Awards, Arthur Ellis Awards, Heritage Toronto Award, Toronto Book Award, Hamilton Literary Award, Forest of Reading Awards, and many others. Recent bestsellers include Seven by Farzana Doctor, The Great Canadian Bucket List by Robin Esrock, The Wealthy Renter by Alex Avery, Red Wolf by Jennifer Dance, The Sport and Prey of Capitalists by Linda McQuaig, and the Birder Murder Mystery series by Steve Burrows.
