About Scholastic About Scholastic

Scholastic Canada is one of the country's leading publishers and distributors of children's books and educational materials in both official languages.

For over 60 years Scholastic Canada has introduced young people to the joys of reading, and has enlarged their understanding of Canada and the world.

Today we continue that mission with award-winning Canadian books and outstanding classroom materials, along with related educational software.

Incorporated in 1957, Scholastic Canada Ltd. was the first of an international family of companies that now includes members in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, India and Asia. All evolved from the original Scholastic company founded in 1920 by M.R. (Robbie) Robinson in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Scholastic Canada has also grown dramatically. Its impressive head office and distribution warehouse in Markham, Ontario is complemented by six Book Fair branches across Canada. From coast to coast, Scholastic Canada employs approximately 800 Canadians, both full- and part-time.

Scholastic Canada Ltd. serves children, parents and teachers through a variety of businesses including Scholastic Book Clubs and Book Fairs, Scholastic Education, Classroom Magazines, Trade, and Les éditions Scholastic. Scholastic Canada is also highly regarded internationally for its Canadian publishing program, which includes many award-winning authors and illustrators dedicated to producing books that delight children and inspire them to become lifelong readers.
