Purchasing from Canadian Publishers - 2019/2020

We are once again able to purchase ebooks and audiobooks and make them available to eligible users (users with print disabilities) through our catalogue. Content purchased for the NNELS collection is licensed under an unlimited, perpetual use license and is DRM-free, so it can be consumed by various readers and devices. Access to our collection is limited to eligible readers who have print disabilities — the general public does not have access. Generally, we purchase content at retail price.

We purchased content from a number of Canadian publishers in 2018 and early 2019, and if we missed you, we’re interested in your books! For those publishers we have purchased from in the past, we are also interested in purchasing your new titles released since the last purchase. We are able to purchase from DeMarque, eBOUND, and directly from publishers; we would also be interested in talking to other Canadian distributors.

For more information, please contact our Accessible Publishing Coordinator, Leah Brochu, at

Applications will remain open until December 31st, 2019.
