Grant awarded to local publisher

Wood Lake Publishing has been awarded a federal government grant to keep publishing its faith-oriented books.

Wood Lake Publishing has been awarded an unspecified amount of money in a grant from the federal government’s Canada Book Fund.

Wood Lake Publishing has been providing readers with unique, accessible perspectives on matters of soul and spirit through its digital and printed books for over three decades.

“Given the current realities and challenges facing Canadian publishers, Wood Lake Publishing is very pleased that the Government of Canada has chosen to continue to support Canadian publishers and publications through the Canada Book Fund program,” said Michael Schwartzentruber, president of Wood Lake Publishing.

“The support we receive is absolutely essential to the maintenance of our publishing program. Wood Lake products are used throughout Canada and the U.S., as well as in the U.K., Europe, Australia, and even parts of Asia. In other words,” Schwartzentruber said, “the Canada Book Fund makes an invaluable contribution to the lives of thousands, both here at home in Canada and around the world.”

Announcing the grant, Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan said: “Investing in arts and culture is central to the economic and social health of Kelowna–Lake Country and communities across Canada. With our support, Wood Lake Publishing will continue to introduce people from around the world to the delights of reading Canadian-authored books.”
