Long-term Desired Outcome
The CCBC's ultimate goal is for every Canadian child to have access to Canadian books and for every Canadian creator to flourish in their career. When the organization began in 1976, less than 50 Canadian titles were published each year. In 2019, approximately 1,000 Canadian books for children were published in French and English. While our original organizational goal was to help bring more Canadian books into creation, now our task is putting those books into the hands of as many people as possible. One of our principal goals for the future is to reach more remote areas, including Indigenous communities. Although this is already done through Canadian Children's Book Week and the TD Grade One Book Giveaway, we hope to expand so that as many children as possible can be reached.
