Foreign Rights Marketing Assistance Program (FRMAP)


Given the health and safety precautions set out by the Government of Canada owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, until further notice Livres Canada Books does not support or encourage international travel.

We will, nevertheless, continue to provide financial assistance for non-refundable expenses resulting from cancellations.


This program fosters Canadian publishers’ export sales by providing cost-shared funding for export sales trips and participation in international book fairs and trade events.

Livres Canada Books supports exporting publishers from all regions of Canada, including national and provincial publisher associations, through this fund.

Eligible publishers may choose from a diverse range of conferences, industry events, book fairs and sales trips that best meet their export marketing needs.
