University of Regina Press is located on Treaty 4 Territory, the traditional lands of the Cree, Saulteaux, and Assiniboine, and the homelands of the Métis in Canada.
A little house on the prairie with big ambitions, University of Regina Press (URP) publishes books that matter—in both academic and trade formats. Their non-fiction trade books tend towards the hard-hitting, while most of their scholarly titles are accessible to non-specialists. They endeavour to develop writers into public intellectuals, encourage debate, and inspire young people to study the humanities by publishing books that are both seen and relevant.
Since their launch in 2013, University of Regina Press has published seven bestsellers:
- After the War: Surviving PTSD and Changing Mental Health Culture by Stéphane Grenier, with Adam Montgomery (2018)
