Discover industry contacts, program recipients, productions shooting and more.


The Market Expansion Fund replaces the Passport to Markets program for book publishers. This program provides financial support for B.C. book publishers to attend select book fairs, conferences and events for the purpose of promoting their publishing list in both foreign and domestic markets, expanding business opportunities through foreign and subsidiary rights sales and the development of digital marketing materials or campaigns. Companies will be allotted up to $10,000* per fiscal year (April 1 – March 31), for activities that meet the standards and program objectives and deemed eligible by Creative BC.

(*Note that additional funds are available for publishers attending Frankfurt Book Fair and Pacific Northwest Bookseller Association events. See Guidelines.)

Creative BC acknowledges the unprecedented challenges the creative industries are facing due to the global impact of Covid-19. As a result, changes have been made to the Market Expansion Fund for fiscal year 2022-2023(April 1, 2022 – March 31, 2023). Creative BC is committed with working with clients on solutions that will allow businesses to continue to operate during this time of uncertainty.
