Penguin Group Canada is a publisher of fiction, literary, autobiography, reference, classic, and academic books. It is an affiliate of Penguin Group, which operates in the USA, the UK, New Zealand, China, South Africa, and other countries. The main competitors of the publisher are Harper Collins Canada, Coach House Books, and others.

Penguin Group Canada was established in 1974 as Penguin Books and initially, it operated as Penguin International’s distribution arm. In 1982, the company began to publish indigenous Canadian work, for example, paperbacks by Alice Munro, Timothy Findley, Robertson Davies, and Alice Munro, along with Company of Adventurers, the history of the Hudson’s Bay Company by Peter C. Newman. Penguin Group Canada also offers eBooks, which can be stored and read on eBook reading devices and computers. Readers can choose from different genres, including thriller, fiction, non-fiction, young adult, and others.

Penguin Canada publishes fiction, health and fitness, biography and autobiography, reference books, and more. It has published authors such as Guy Gavriel Kay, Michael Smith, William Shatner, Lev Grossman, and many others. Penguin Canada aims to publish books that explore issues of social importance and reach the broadest reading public. The books published by Penguin are often controversial and tackle subjects such as the crises faced in education and healthcare, the tragedies of the mentally ill and the homeless, Canadian nationalism, and the role of Canada in the global economy. Penguin Group Canada imprints include Viking Canada, Puffin Canada, and Hamish Hamilton Canada. The publisher distributes books in the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United States, including Gotham Books, Berkley, Hudson Street Press, and Viking USA, among others. In addition, Penguin Group Canada distributes books from a variety of foreign publishers such as Bloomsbury and Faber & Faber, W.W. Norton, and Icon Books. As a result of BBC Worldwide and Penguin forming a joint venture, BBC Children's Books has published a number of contemporary children’s brands.

Penguin Canada features discounts on bulk orders, and retailers can use the publisher’s zeitgeist publishing, classic titles, or bestsellers to create focused promotions, expand product lines, or for corporate gifting.
