On Point Press Logo


UBC Press is located on the sea-swept promontory of Point Grey, Vancouver – and our promise is to publish sharp, authoritative, and thought-provoking works of non-fiction under our trade imprint, On Point Press.

On Point Press will introduce a broad audience of readers to current thinking and new ideas about history, politics, Indigenous studies, the environment, and the natural world, areas that have long reflected UBC Press's stellar publishing reputation in the scholarly realm. On Point books will be intelligent and engaging, they will provoke discussion and reaction, they will enlighten and amuse. And they will set the bar for cutting-edge, quality non-fiction publishing in Canada.
