The Canadian Centre for Studies in Publishing (CCSP) is Canada’s book, magazine and online publishing research and education centre based at Simon Fraser University’s Harbour Centre building, located in downtown Vancouver. Founded in 1987, the CCSP is a university/industry initiative dedicated to the development of publishing in Canada and internationally. It is advised by an industry board and emphasizes book, magazine, and web publishing. The CCSP offers a Master’s degree in publishing, an undergraduate minor in publishing (these under the Faculty of Communication, Art, and Technology), as well as SFU’s Summer Publishing Workshops.
