Canada renews funding for books and digital technologies

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Government of Canada renewed funding for the Canadian book industry to assist the industry through the tough times. The additional funding will be used to help the industry invest in technologies to keep up with digital publishing as it evolves. A posting on the website notes that it will enable publishers to adopt new business models, publish more books in the formats that Canadians prefer, and utilize more efficient distribution processes. Andrew Wooldridge, President of the Association of Book Publishers in British Columbia commented, “This will help ensure that Canadian books continue to be available for Canadians to read, in whatever formats readers want them.”
