University of Manitoba Press is dedicated to publishing books that combine important new scholarship with a deep engagement in the issues and events that affect the lives of Canadians. Founded in 1967, UMP was the first university press established in western Canada. We are widely recognized as a leading publisher of books on Indigenous history, Indigenous studies, and Canadian history. UMP’s editorial focus also includes books on the Arctic and the North; ethnic and immigration studies; Indigenous languages; Canadian literary studies, especially Indigenous literature; environment, land use, and food studies. We also publish a wide-ranging list of books on the culture and history of the Canadian prairies.
Inhabit Media is an Inuit-owned publishing company that aims to promote and preserve the stories, knowledge, and talent of northern Canada.
Pauktuutit is the national representative organization of Inuit women in Canada and is governed by a 15-member Board of Directors from across Inuit Nunangat and in the south. We foster greater awareness of the needs of Inuit women, advocate for equality and social improvements, and encourage Inuit women’s full participation at the community, regional, national, and international levels. By working with government, community leaders, and Inuit organizations, we support Inuit women in reaching their full potential in safe, happy communities, wherever they reside in Canada.
Since its creation in 1984, Pauktuutit has been a leader in a broad range of sensitive and timely issues in the areas of violence and abuse prevention, health, and socio-economic development. We also bring an Inuit-specific gendered lens to a range of policy issues and initiatives, including the development and application of a culturally relevant GBA+ framework.
To further ensure Inuit women’s rights, Pauktuutit collaborates with numerous partners, including other regional, national, and international Inuit organizations, Indigenous organizations, and government departments with relevant mandates and priorities.
Inuit Studies is devoted to the study of Inuit societies, either traditional or contemporary, in the general perspective of social sciences and humanities (ethnology, politics, archaeology, linguistics, history, etc.). The Journal has grown to become a major crossroad of information on northern endeavors. The issues are available on the website of Érudit . Only the subscribers can have access to the most recent issues.
Nunavut Arctic College Media (NAC Media) is located at the Nunavut Research Institute in Iqaluit. NAC Media publishes books pertaining to Inuit culture, language and history.
