The League of Canadian Poets is the professional organization for established and emerging Canadian poets. Founded by six poets in 1966 to nurture the community of poets and the craft of poetry, it now represents some 700 members nationally. The League serves the poetry community and promotes a high level of professional achievement through events, networking, projects, publications, mentoring, and awards; administers programs and funds for governments and private donors; and encourages an appreciative readership and audience through educational partnerships and presentations to diverse groups. As the recognized voice of Canadian poets, it represents their concerns to governments, publishers, and the larger society, and maintains connections with similar organizations at home and abroad. The League strives to promote equal opportunities for poets from every literary tradition and cultural and demographic background.
