About Nova Scotia Publishers

The book publishing industry in Nova Scotia has been a vital part of the province’s culture, communities and economy since John Bushell set up his press in Halifax in 1752.

Today, publishing houses in the province publish more than 150 new titles annually, with a special focus on local stories, authors and illustrators and with the assistance of local editors, designers and publicists.
