Nimbus Publishing is a publishing company based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The company specializes in subjects relevant to the Atlantic Provinces.

Prior to 2017 the company published an average of 35 to 40 new titles a year, but expanded its output to 55 titles that year. The company focuses on subjects relevant to the Atlantic Provinces in a variety of genres including children’s picture books and fiction, non-fiction, history, nature photography, current events, biography, sports, and cultural issues.

It is the largest Canadian English-language publisher east of Toronto.[2]

In 2005, Nimbus introduced a new fiction imprint called Vagrant Press.[3] In 2012 owner John Marshall sold the company and general manager, Dan Soucoup retired.[citation needed] Two employees, Terrilee Bulger and Heather Bryan, bought the company in order to prevent it from being purchased by a larger publishing house in Ontario.[citation needed]

In March 2018, the publishing house moved to a warehouse on Strawberry Hill Street in Halifax and added a coffee shop and bookstore to the premises.[4]
