Canadian Fiction Publishers

Editor’s note: Here is a list of about 40 Canadian fiction publishers.  This list is a pretty good place to start if you’re interested in publishing your fiction work in the Canadian market place.  As I prefer to write fiction over non-fiction work, this list is geared towards fiction publishers.

If you have any personal experiences with any of the companies listed below, please share.  Good luck!
