University of Toronto Press (UTP) is Canada's leading scholarly publisher and one of the largest university presses in North America. Founded in 1901, UTP has published over 6,500 books, with well over 3,500 of these still in print.

The Scholarly Publishing division produces approximately 175 titles per year, and the Higher Education division publishes around 25 titles per year. The Press has published dozens of notable authors, including Northrop Frye, Robertson Davies, Harold Innis, Marshall McLuhan, Mark Kingwell, Lester Pearson, George Elliott Clarke, Julia Kristeva, Yousuf Karsh, and Umberto Eco, and has produced some of the most important books ever published in Canada, such as The Gutenberg Galaxy, The Bias of Communication, The Vertical Mosaic, the Historical Atlas of Canada, the Dictionary of Canadian Biography and History of the Book in Canada.

In 2008, UTP and the Rotman School of Management launched a new imprint called Rotman-UTP Publishing that focuses on actionable business books for professionals and students. In addition, UTP has significantly expanded its course and textbook offerings through the acquisition of selected lists from Broadview Press, resulting in the UTP Higher Education Division.

The Journals Division is dedicated to innovation in publishing and the sustainability of scholarly journals. The Journals team works hand-in-hand with editors and associations to assist publications in achieving their goals in the most efficient and cost effective manner - resulting in major strides forward in areas such as online peer review systems and online advance publishing. The Journals Division offers bilingual online peer review and editorial support; copy-editing, typesetting and XML tagging; e-publishing and printing; marketing management and advertising sales; circulation and distribution.

UTP continues to pursue its commitment to the dissemination of knowledge through a bold new eBook initiative. In 2008, UTP made more than 1,200 of its titles available to the academic library community; that number has since grown to nearly 2,000, and work is under way to make ebooks available on a wider commercial basis. Likewise, more than 19 journals published or managed by UTP are available online.

The Distribution and UTP Print divisions offer services to a broad range of clients, including publishers, government institutions, and other corporations. The Retail division serves the three University of Toronto campuses, and operates respectively under the U of T Bookstore, Campus Express, Computer Shop, and Varsity Sports Store brands. These stores supply textbooks, medical books and supplies, course materials, University of Toronto logo merchandise, clothing, stationery, general interest trade books, food, and beverages. The Computer Shops offer computers and software, and the St. George Campus store has an Apple service department and cell phone shop.
