Story of Heritage House

Heritage House began telling Canada's stories in 1969. Our first book, Wagon Road North, remains one of BC's five all-time bestsellers, with over 140,000 copies sold.

Many of our books celebrate the pioneer spirit and colourful history of western Canada, particularly the Cariboo region in which the company's roots are founded. 

Others delve into contemporary themes, focusing on significant cultural, social, political, environmental and recreational subjects. We also have a range of full-colour pictorials and recreational guides, and a series of shorter narratives designed for younger readers, new Canadians and casual readers, called Amazing Stories. If this is your first encounter with Heritage House, you've just struck gold!

Heritage House publishes 20-30 new titles per year. Most of our authors are Canadian citizens or residents, as our mission is to publish and promote distinctive non-fiction works by Canadian authors. 

Heritage House is a member of The Heritage Group, an affiliation of five separate entities. In addition to our company, it includes our distribution partner, Heritage Group Distribution, and publishing houses TouchWood Editions, Brindle & Glass and Rocky Mountain Books. By sharing select resources, we are better able to generate publicity, expand promotional activities and serve retail customers and readers alike. 

The Heritage Group was given the Association of Book Publishers of BC's 2008 Jim Douglas Publisher of the Year Award.

Heritage House is an active member of the Association of Canadian Publishers and the Association of Book Publishers of BC.
