The Canadian Plains Research Center (CPRC) was the longest-serving research institute at the University of Regina with a broad mandate to improve understanding and appreciation of the Canadian Plains region, its people, and its resources. It did so through contributing to the development of a broad community of scholars of the region using interdisciplinary approaches that initiate and support scholarly research on all aspects of prairie life.
Built on the foundation of the former Canadian Plains Research Center Press (CPRC Press), the U of R Press launched on June 1, 2013 and continues to publish books on aboriginal issues, the environment, and other topics while strengthening its peer review process. A publisher of regional non-fiction trade titles, the U of R Press continues to sell the 230 books from the CPRC Press backlist with the help of its savvy sales and marketing team.
With a goal to enhance scholarship, discover great writers, and see University of Regina Press titles read around the world, it is with real enthusiasm that we launch this new publishing venture.
