The IV Programme welcomes a select group of international publishing leaders to Canada every year. Modelled on similar successful programmes in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Israel, Japan, New Zealand and the UK, the IV Programme connects influential foreign publishing professionals with Canadian authors, agents, editors and publishers, and even the broader reading public.

The 13th edition of the IV Programme took place during the 41st edition the Toronto International Festival of Authors (October 22–November 1, 2020). The 2020 Fellows were:
