First Book Canada, a registered charity, provides new books and educational resources to Canadian children from low-income families, addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy – access to books. In 2014, we granted over 825,000 new books to children across the country. Through work with publishing partners, an ever-expanding network of volunteers, and over 3,000 book recipient groups, First Book Canada grants children in need unprecedented access to free and low-cost books. First Book Canada works through existing community programs and literacy efforts already serving this population, elevating the quality of these programs with additional mission-related resources.
