Dedicated to excellence in the distribution of books in Canada and internationally.

And that's why Canadian booksellers benefit.

One single call to your Canadian trade wholesaler means you're in control of your inventory.

That's something to be proud of.

Canadian publishers support Canadian wholesalers because they depend on them for their distribution skills. Trade book wholesalers help publishers maximize sales - and that's good for the entire industry. The more books we sell, the stronger the publishers and the better the publishing programs.
