IBBY Canada is a non-profit organization committed to bringing books and children together as a way to foster understanding and friendship between children of different cultures. We believe that children’s literature can bring about positive change.
Founded in 1980, IBBY Canada is one of 75 National Sections of the International Board on Books for Young People. IBBY was founded in Switzerland in 1953.
IBBY Canada is pleased to present the 2021 edition of From Sea to Sea to Sea: Celebrating Indigenous Picture Books.
25 of the best Indigenous picture books published in Canada between 2018–2020 were selected for this collection. Care was taken to ensure that the collection reflects the diversity of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit voices from sea to sea to sea, and that the titles are available and in print for anyone who wishes to access them.
The selection committee considered over 100 titles in curating this collection. The previous edition of the collection was released in 2018.

Increasing numbers of refugee claimants are arriving in Toronto and facing longer and longer wait times for refugee hearings. Children and families require services and programs during this transitional time. IBBY Canada’s Readers and Refugees is one such program.
Starting in May 2018, IBBY Canada volunteers met to read with young refugee claimants once a week for a five-week pilot program at Christie Street Refugee Welcome Centre in Toronto.
Based on the success of phase one of the pilot program, IBBY Canada is set to launch an expanded phase two in fall 2018 and looks forward to growing its scope in 2019.
