About Us

Oolichan Books is based in Fernie, B.C. in the Rocky Mountains. Our name is taken from the small fish, once plentiful in West Coast waters and a staple in the diet of First Nations people to whom it was sacred. The oolichan, often referred to as the candlefish, is believed to possess healing powers and guarantee longevity. Oolichan Books is a literary press, publishing poetry, fiction and non-fiction titles.
