Our Mission

Read your way across Canada!

With your help, Project Bookmark Canada is building a network of sites and stories across the country, so that residents and visitors can read our literature right where it's set.


Project Bookmark Canada places poster-sized enameled porcelain plaques, bearing up to 500 words of text from a story or poem, in the exact physical locations where literary scenes take place. It's unique in the world and it's happening right here in Canada, with your help.

Give to assist our programs overall. To donate toward Bookmarks on the Canadian Literary Trail, connecting readers to authors setting their stories in communities right across the country, go to
