Communication for Business Professionals – Canadian Edition is adapted from Business Communication for Success which was in turn adapted in 2013 by University of Minnesota Libraries Publishing through the eLearning Support Initiative. The 2018 revision continues to be licensed with a Creative Commons license (CC BY-NC-SA) following the precedent of a publisher who has requested that they and the original author not receive attribution.
This 2018 adaptation has significantly reduced the size and scope of the original publication and added Canadian examples, where practical, to better suit an Ontario community college context. In particular, the writing chapters 6 through 10 have been moved to a separate supplementary resource Business Communication for Success Writing Workbook.
