The Need
Almost 25% of Canadian households don't have a single book.

Public education and programs are deeply underfunded, and books are a luxury many families cannot afford. Without adequate resources, children cannot learn. The impact of this cycle is staggering.

Our Impact
Every year, First Book Canada reaches hundreds of thousands of children and the educators who serve them.

We have distributed more than six million books and resources to date. We currently reach hundreds of thousands children every year.
