Heritage House began telling Canada's stories in 1969. Our first book, Wagon Road
North, remains one of BC's five all-time bestsellers, with over 140,000 copies sold.
Many of our books celebrate the pioneer spirit and colourful history of western Canada, particularly the Cariboo region in which the company's roots are founded.
Others delve into contemporary themes, focusing on significant cultural, social, political, environmental and recreational subjects. We also have a range of full-colour pictorials and recreational guides, and a series of shorter narratives designed for younger readers, new Canadians and casual readers, called Amazing Stories. If this is your first encounter with Heritage House, you've just struck gold!
Heritage House publishes 20-30 new titles per year. Most of our authors are Canadian citizens or residents, as our mission is to publish and promote distinctive non-fiction works by Canadian authors.
We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Canada Book Fund and the Canada Council for the Arts,
and of the province of British Columbia through the British Columbia Arts Council and the Book Publishing Tax Credit.
