In 1969, the Western Geographical Series was designed as a forum for the expression of contemporary North American geographical thought and the presentation of the results of recent research activities.
Published by the Department of Geography at the University of Victoria and edited by Harold D. Foster, it included monographs and articles written by prominent scientists from a variety of disciplines.
In the summer of 1995, the Department of Geography at the University of Victoria established the Western Geographical Press. After negotiating with both John Wiley & Sons Ltd. and UBC Press, the Western Geographical Series was split into two components: the International Western Geographical Series, published and distributed by John Wiley & Sons Ltd. and the Canadian Western Geographical Series distributed by UBC Press. Both series are produced by the Western Geographical Press.
Western Geographical Press is a member of the Association of Canadian University Presses.
