How much does it cost to publish in Canada?
The answer depends on who you ask, and it depends on where you are.
As the government of Canada’s most populous province is now poised to release its first figures on how much it costs publishers to publish, it is worth examining the numbers in Canada’s top book-publishing markets.
As a general rule, it’s about double what it costs to publish a book in the U.S. In fact, if you look at the data for the three markets where the average price of a book published is about $50,000, Canada’s overall average price is about half of what it is in the United States.
That means that publishers who do well in the three regions — Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal — can expect to rake in $70 million or more.
If they’re a small publisher, the average publisher will likely rake in just $30,000 to $40,000.
But if they’re in the middle of the pack, it can be even higher.
A number of Canadian book publishers have been making big bucks recently, according to a recent report from the Association of Canadian Publishers.
In Vancouver and Toronto, the industry average price per book sold was $90,000 in 2014, up from $70,000 the previous year.
And in Vancouver and Quebec City, the two largest book-sellers, prices per book in 2014 were about $85,000 and $95,000 respectively.
That’s a $3,000 increase in annual profits.
In Quebec City alone, the city’s book-seller trade association says book prices have more than doubled in a decade.
In Toronto, book prices are up more than 25 per cent in the last three years.
And there are a few other factors that help determine the average book price in each region, as well.
Some provinces have lower average book prices than others, for example.
Quebec City and Montreal have the highest average book costs in the country at $89,000 for print books and $99,000 on e-books.
But a study by the University of Toronto suggests that, in most cases, prices are driven by the volume of books sold.
In Ontario, for instance, there are fewer books sold in 2014 than the previous two years.
As for the rest of Canada, the difference is even more stark.
The book-buying habits of Canadians vary considerably from region to region, and this has influenced the average costs of publications.
The Canadian Book Publishers Association, a group that represents the country’s book industry, estimates that the average Canadian book-buyer spends about $7,500 per year on ebooks.
In Canada’s book markets, that figure jumps to $25,000 per year.
But in Ontario, where the market leader, the Ontario Booksellers Association says that prices per title range from $2,500 to $7.5 million, the figure is only about $1,400.
The reason for this disparity?
E-books are more expensive than print books, and because the industry has more e-book retailers, books are often more expensive to produce than print.
It’s also possible that the higher costs of e-pubs come down to the fact that many of the big book publishers are located in Toronto and Vancouver, where it’s easier for their book stores to handle the influx of book traffic.
If this is the case, then, if publishers in the big three book-selling regions are doing well, the Canadian average book-price increase is likely to be even bigger.
A Canadian publisher’s share of sales in each market The figures above only reflect the average prices paid by publishers in each of the three books-selling markets in Canada.
If the average number of sales per publisher in each book-market were to double, it would mean that the number of books that are sold in the top three regions in Canada would increase by almost four-fifths of one per cent.
This is significant because in the past few years, the number one book-to-book transfer in Canada has been the Kindle, which has now been downloaded more than 10 million times.
And the Kindle has also attracted a lot of new book buyers.
The growth in e-readers has also created a new breed of publishers.
In 2015, the book market in Canada accounted for just over one-third of all book sales, according a recent study from research firm eMarketer.
But that number has grown to over five-fifth of a per cent this year, with e-reading and other digital books accounting for a larger share of the market.
In 2016, the biggest jump in ebooks came from Amazon, which increased its total sales by over one million books in just four months.
In 2017, the second-biggest jump came from Flipkart, which tripled its sales in the first half of the year to a total of over four million books.
As publishers and retailers alike are embracing the digital market, book-shops have also begun to open up.
