The Dundurn Group

For 36 years, the Dundurn Group has been fulfilling its mandate to publish quality Canadian books in a wide variety of genres for domestic and international markets. Established in 1972 by Kirk Howard, Dundurn has steadily grown from a small publisher of Canadian history, politics, biography, and current affairs into one of the largest publishers of adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction in Canada, expanding to include six imprints, ranging from junior and teen novels to the Castle Street Mysteries. During this time, books published by the Dundurn group have won or been nominated for a number of awards, including the Governor General’s Literary Award for fiction, non-fiction, and translation; the Arthur Ellis Awards; and the Edgar Awards.
