Jay Bardyla

Happy Harbor Ltd.
Edmonton, Alberta
Jay has created a thriving community of literate nerds throughout Alberta. As a co-owner of the Edmonton-based Happy Harbor Comics (1999-2019), he helped build an innovative and international award-winning business that offered a variety of opportunities to artists, writers and educators. Happy Harbor visited hundreds of schools and libraries to spread the joy of comics, creativity and literacy, also donating more than $10,000 worth of comics back to libraries with their Comic Book Fair program. His store was also the first in Canada to develop and maintain a Comics Artist-in-Residence program, which supported creators financially as well as creatively. He is a Director on the boards for the Comics Legends Legal Defense Fund and Daze Magazine non-profits, a guest instructor at Pixel Blue Art College, and a regular presenter and Keynote Speaker at Library conferences across the Province. His next endeavour is the development of the Comics Museum of Canada.
