This prestigious special focus at the Angoulême International Comics Festival is an excellent opportunity to showcase the diversity and creativity of Canada’s Ninth Art on the international stage. Activities related to the special focus will highlight Canada’s literary talent, arts, culture and stories to an international readership, as well as promote the sale of publishing and distribution rights for a wide range of Canadian works. The special focus on Canadian Ninth Art will also include strategic locations for book sales and signings as well as literary programming and an author delegation.  

The Canada Stand will be located in the Pavillon Canada, a dedicated space to hold B2B meetings and exhibit your titles in the heart of the city's pedestrian and shopping district that will welcome public and professional visitors alike. There will also be an information desk at the Marché International des Droits (MID) to direct the professionals to the Pavillon for meetings.

Canada’s presence is thanks to a partnership with Global Affairs Canada, the government lead for the country's participation in this major event, and Canadian Heritage, who will support the Canadian presence through trade activities in collaboration with Livres Canada Books and with support from Québec BD.

Livres Canada Books is offering one-stop exhibitor services for this special event at minimal cost. Space on the Canada Stand is limited and will prioritize French- and English-language publishers known for expertise in the comics medium.
