About Us

The Literary Review of Canada Charitable Organization publishes the award-winning LRC. Published since 1991, the LRC is the country’s leading forum for discussion and debate about books, culture, politics and ideas.

The LRC runs lively, expert reviews of Canadian books—as well as the occasional foreign title if on a Canadian subject or considered alongside Canadian titles on the same theme—and essays by some of the country’s most thought-provoking writers. Contributors have included the likes of Peter C. Newman, John Ralston Saul, Tom Flanagan, Charlotte Gray, Erna Paris, Rawi Hage, Linda Hutcheon, Joan Barfoot, Ian Hacking, Andrew Coyne, Richard Lipsey, Lawrence Hill, Jennifer Welsh, and Conrad Black. The LRC proudly publishes original Canadian poetry and illustrations in every issue.

The LRC gratefully acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the ArtsOntario Arts Council and Ontario Media Development Corporation.
