Amazon Canada Kindle Unlimited Now Available in Canada! Kindle Unlimited Now Available in Canada!

Good news for book lovers: Amazon.ca has finally brought over Kindle Unlimited to Canada!

If you haven't heard of this program before, Amazon.ca will allow you to read as many books as you want from their selection of over 750,000 titles for a monthly fee of $9.99. What's great is that this offer is valid for both Kindle and non-Kindle owners; since Amazon.ca has pushed out Kindle apps for smartphone, desktop and tablet users, you can still enjoy this program without investing in a Kindle.

Not sure if you want to commit $10/month right off the bat? Luckily, as with most other Amazon programs, you can first enjoy a 30-day free trial. Simply head over here, sign into your Amazon.ca account and select 'Start your 30-day free trial'. However, keep in mind that you'll need to cancel your free trial before your 30 days are up or Amazon.ca will automatically charge you on a monthly basis. Unfortunately, this free trial is not available to residents of Quebec.

Kindle Unlimited boasts an offering of over 750,000 books, which is pretty overwhelming. Not sure if the book you want is available? Click here to check out some of their selection.

    • Awesome. I've had my Kindle setup as american since they released the Kindle Unlimited program. So great. I haven't touched any of my other (entirely legitimate) collection of books on my computer since I got the program.

      Now I can start paying it in CAD instead of USD. Nice.

    • I signed up for this just now... So far i've tried about 10 titles that i want to read and none are available. Seems to be very limited selection. I will likely not be paying for this one trial ends. Thanks op for posting tho.

      i was on american ver before and waited the longest time before i converted to canadian ....i think it's very close? .... there might be books in one country thats not in the other (just like netflix) ... for example, i got "When Google Met Wikileaks" by Julian Assange and that was only in Canada (for obvious reasons) .... for the most part though i believe they are similar now

    • Obligatory mention that many people in Canada have an alternative: many public library systems have ebooks available for loan. The one significant issue is that Canadian libraries don't support the Kindle readers themselves, but if you read on a phone/tablet or have a non-Kindle reader like a Kobo, you have access. Here's the FAQ for the Toronto library system. I haven't actually checked the size of Toronto's collection (I need to renew my library card first!) but based on the complaints about Amazon's selection, it's entirely possible TPL is better. Plus, it's essentially free.

    • I have been waiting for the launch of the Amazon book "Lending Library" which is included with a Prime membership in the USA. I hope it comes to Canada soon since they have now launched Kindle Unlimited here.

      +1 TPL has the best collection. Be it motivation book, fitness book or technical book. I normally search technical book and they have it 95% of the time Safari way to go.

      Im really impressed with the library systems these days.. Zinio, Pressreader, Hoopla, Overdrive and new release movie rentals.. makes the library an extremely useful tool.

      free trial is not available in Quebec.
      Is it just the trial or the payed service on the whole is unavailable to Quebec residents? Just another reason to circumvent location based discrimination.

    • Not a great selection of books. I'll probably pay for this for a few months until I run out of books I'm actually interested in reading.

    • Also if you are not Toronto residence you can purchase membership for $35 for six months. That's cheap for amount of access one have.

      Safari books no borrowing limit :D

      Says it is just the free trial. Usually things like this are due to the Quebec consumer protection laws. Like you can't have no pay for 6 month etc. promotions in Quebec.

      I get an error saying its not available in my country...but maybe its because I have a dns service redirecting me to think I am in the US?

      Thanks

    • I looked through the selection for the genres I normally read in and the selection is significantly worse than my public library's overdrive selection. I'd recommend people stay away until it gets better.
