CanBooks is a small Canadian Publishing House, located in rural Saskatchewan. Using the Internet and other modern technology, CanBooks operates it's business from many corners of the world. In many ways, we are the ultimate cottage industry. The only thing that ties us to Saskatchewan, is that we need to have our registration parked somewhere, and our bank account has to exist at some physical location. Since our roots are in Saskatchewan, that's where our base is located.
In actuality, our authors are located in various corners of the world, our editors thousands of miles away, and even the accountant is on the other side of Canada! Added to this, our books are printed on various presses in different countries, and sold from many international points of sale. The day when everyone had to drive to a central office to work has long passed. Today we may have an author writing in the middle of the Arabian desert corresponding with an editor in Ontario, an artist in New Zealand, the layout being done in Europe, and the book being printed simultaneously in several countries. This is the way that modern business is carried out in our global world.
But for those of you who need to know where we are, CanBooks is registered in Canada under the Business Names Registration Act, Corporations Branch, Government of Saskatchewan, Canada, entry Number 101002662. It is the property of CanBooks and cannot be used by other firms or businesses in the province of Saskatchewan. It is also registered in British Columbia under BC Registry Services as CanBooks BC, Business number 82290 0486 BC0001, Corporate Registry FM0578155.
We published our first book in January 1991 and have been publishing several new titles every year since then. The year 2014 marked the first year that a book published by CanBooks became the basis of an documentary film. This film should be released in 2015. It's a great place to work, if you can call it a place. Most of the people involved in the production of our books have never met each other, at least not physically. But that doesn't stop us from being creative and producing great books and games.
