Greystone Books works with The Heritage Group (which includes Heritage Group Distribution and the publishing imprints Heritage House Publishers, TouchWood Editions, and Rocky Mountain Books) on a number of back-end publishing services and for parts of its regional and Canadian national sales programs.

David Suzuki Institute

The David Suzuki Institute works closely with the David Suzuki Foundation to advance awareness of important environmental and other ethical and sustainability issues around the world. The Institute is a non-charitable, non-profit organization that was founded in 2010 to stimulate debate and actions on issues that are the focus of its sister organization. Together, the two organizations are a powerful voice for solutions to the most pressing issues of our time.
Greystone Books worked closely with the David Suzuki Foundation for many years and now partners with the David Suzuki Institute to publish books on these issues. Many of the authors and books have been sold around the world where they have won important literary and environmental awards. 

Me to We

Free The Children is an international charity and educational partner that works to educate, engage, and empower youth to become active local and global citizens. This group of passionate young men and women are committed to helping children all around the world, and through their imprint, Me to We, Greystone Books helps spread the word.

LifeTree Media

LifeTree Media is a values-driven, forward-thinking hybrid publishing company specializing in books and ebooks that help, heal and inspire. We believe that authors should have access to high-quality, elegant publishing services and full-scale in-store distribution without having to give up their publishing rights or control over the timing and execution of their book. Greystone is proud to distribute LifeTree Media books.
