The University of Manitoba Press is receiving $43,862 in support from the federal government.
The funding, announced Monday by Winnipeg South MP Rod Bruinooge, comes from the $39.1 million Canada Book Fund.
The investment will allow U of M Press, founded in 1967, to offer more of its rich selection of Canadian-authored books to readers everywhere, in both digital and print formats.
“The Canada Book Fund has provided important and stable to support to our press during this volatile time in the book industry. It’s meant that we’ve been able to invest in new books and new processes that help us to remain competitive and successful,” said David Carr, director of University of Manitoba Press.
