Dates of existence


The Harbour Publishing Company began as the "Raincoast Chronicles", a periodical which started in 1972 under the direction of Howard White and the Raincoast Historical Society. "Raincoast Chronicles” featured works by and about the people of the Pacific Northwest and focused on the culture and industries, particularly fishing and logging, which shaped their identity. This influence continued when Howard White incorporated Harbour Publishing in 1984. Over the years, Harbour developed relationships with others in the publishing industry, including Nightwood Editions and Caitlin Press. Not only do they publish works under their own banner and for these additional companies, they also assist with select self-publishing endeavours.
