Since its inception in 1974, Toronto’s International Festival of Authors has welcomed more than 9,000 authors from over 100 countries, including 22 Nobel Laureates and countless other award winners.

IFOA presents the finest international novelists, poets, playwrights, short story writers and biographers, and provides Canadian writers with an internationally recognized forum in which to present their work.

Incorporated in 1986 as a non-profit organization with a mandate to cultivate and advance the cause of literature, IFOA is home to a weekly event series (September to June), the annual International Festival of Authors (October) and ALOUD: a Celebration for Young Readers with Forest of Reading® Festival of Trees™ (May), presented with the Ontario Library Association. IFOA also runs Toronto Lit Up, a three-year programme supported by the Toronto Arts Council (TAC) that helps launch and promote the work of local authors.

In 2006, IFOA introduced its touring programme, IFOA Ontario, which now visits communities in numerous cities and towns across the province.
