In a small, unassuming two-room shop at the bottom of the stairs at the Place Naviles shopping centre in Ste-Foy (Quebec City) sits Livres Trois Canons, an independent bookstore that specializes in selling new and used books in English.

This little bookstore has been the centre of my life over the past few years, as I have made a new home in Québec City. I have spent countless hours browsing the shelves, sitting at the little round table in the back of the store, coffee in one hand, book in another, engrossed in whatever story I was reading at the time.

Over the past few years, I have seen the shop grow – not in size, mind you. The walls are fixed and the shelves are consistently loaded down. But what has changed for this little store is huge. Livres Trois Canons has become one of the Capitale-Nationale region’s few bookstores to be accredited by the provincial Ministère de la Culture et des Communications, giving it the right to supply materials in English to public institutions.

Store managers Isabelle Green and Susan Stewart, together with the store owners, have been working toward this goal for the past five years.

According to Stewart, the accreditation “enables us to bring in more bestsellers and offer more to the general public because it gives us the financial base to order the titles people want to read. We can offer an even better service than we already do.”
