Who We Are

Our Goals

For over thirty years, Fernwood has published for scholarly, academic, literary, and general readers. Our books analyze exploitation and oppression while amplifying struggles seeking to transform a harmful status quo. We publish critical books for critical thinkers, meaning we are seeking new possibilities for collective thriving, relating, and understanding.

Fernwood is politically driven, not profit driven, which means we can take risks in publishing radical analysis and underheard voices. We make decisions about what we publish based on its political integrity and relevance.

Our books are taken up in scholarly research, university and college courses, and by non-specialist readers. Readers choose Fernwood books because they engage with radical ideas and contribute to the structural change we all deserve.

Our History

Fernwood Publishing Co. Ltd. was founded in August 1991 and published its first books in the spring of 1992. First located in Halifax, Fernwood Publishing expanded with the establishment of an office in Winnipeg in 1994. Since 1992, Fernwood and Roseway have published over 900 titles.

Fernwood works on unceded Indigenous lands; specifically, we create from Kjipuktuk in Mi’kma’ki, colonially known as Halifax, Nova Scotia, the territory of the Mi’kmaq, as well as in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation, which in 1871 became Treaty 1 territory.
