Borealis Books, a division of Borealis Press Ltd., was founded in 1972 to encourage and publish new Canadian writers who demonstrate talent and potential for significant growth (e.g. Carol Shields, Giorgio Di Cicco, Cyril Dabydeen, Kenneth Radou, Guy Vanderhaeghe, among others). As this Press grew, established authors were published as well (e.g. Jan Drabek, Fred Cogswell, Hugh Garner, among others). New needs in Canadian Literature were addressed when the Press expanded to include "series" such as New Canadian Drama and The Journal of Canadian Poetry (annual). The Press has met the on-going need for critical works on established early Canadian writers such as Archibald Lampman, L.M. Montgomery, Isabella Valancy Crawford, E.J. Pratt, Susanna Moodie, among others. Attention is also paid to aboriginal peoples through books on Northern Canada (Northern Studies), the Dogrib (Tale Spinners in a Spruce Tipi), Inuit People (Inuk), Cree People (Payuk and the Polar Bears), Indian Legends(Peter and the Water Manitou, an Indian legend of Lake Superior), Micmac People (From My Vantage Point), Algonkin People (Menominee, The Wild River People), the Metis (The Riel/Real Story), among many others. 

Tecumseh Press was established in 1972 to publish standard Canadian authors and critical texts on their works. The Press produces general studies on such authors as Sara Jeannette Duncan and Tecumseh, among others, specific critical works on Charles G. D. Roberts, Duncan Campbell Scott, Isabella Valancy Crawford, Mavis Gallant and Thomas Chandler Haliburton for example. The poetry category includes Lampman, Sangster, Scott, Roberts, Campbell, Carman, among others. Fiction contains novels for instance by Sara Jeannette Duncan, Robert Stead, Haliburton, Parker and Norman Duncan. Thus, to date the Presses have published 389 titles.

Borealis Press gratefully acknowledges the support of Canadian Heritage of the Government of Canada.
