Our Donors

Canada’s literary trail is made possible by people and organizations who are passionate about Canada: our spaces and stories, our literature and literacy, and the health of our Canadian communities. Inspired? You can join us. 

Build a Bookmark, or Blaze the Trail with a gift to Project Bookmark Canada.  Your gifts are creating a legacy for all Canadians - thank you.
