Welcome to SCBWI Canada West

SCBWI Canada was established in 1997. In 2004, SCBWI Canada split into two regions. SCBWI Canada West includes published and unpublished members from British Columbia, Yukon, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Northwest Territories. However, our critique groups, illustrator meetings, special topic meetings, and other events are open to everyone.
