Tidewater Press books reveal the Canadian mosaic, one tile at a time. We publish both fiction and non-fiction accounts of immigrants, advocates, pioneers and activists whose stories contribute to our national identity. Our protagonists are outsiders trying to fit in or crusaders trying to change their communities. The scale may be intimate or international, but the dynamic is always one that explores individual and collective Canadian identity.

Tidewater Press was founded in 2017 to produce well-written, engaging titles that give readers a fresh perspective on themselves and their world.  Based in New Westminster, British Columbia, on the traditional and unceded territories of the Qayqayt First Nation, Tidewater currently publishes four titles per year—stories that matter by writers who struggle to be heard. We respect the voice of all our authors, and are committed to cultural authenticity and veracity in content, character and portrayal, whether in fiction or non-fiction.
