I Read Canadian Fund 

The I Read Canadian Fund supports getting new Canadian books into the hands of young people across the country. Additionally, this fund supports the expansion of the children’s choice reading programs into indigenous, rural and priority communities, and most importantly, the delivery of new books to young people. Let’s get kids excited about reading for fun! Find out more about why to give and where to give and help us reach our $30,000 goal!
