Support Us

The Word On The Street champions reading and writing in Canada all year long. But we can’t do it alone. Support from book-loving individuals and organizations empowers us to keep producing free, all-ages events like the annual Word On The Street festival. Help us champion Canadian and Indigenous writing by adding your support!

Celebrate the stories that connect us!


Since 1990, we’ve brought hundreds of thousands of book lovers together in celebration of Canadian and Indigenous writers at our annual festival. And we have exciting plans to do more to champion storytelling, ideas, and imagination in the future. But we can’t do it without your support.
