ALEXANDRIA, VA—ASCD, one of the world’s premier providers of professional learning for educators, is excited to announce a new agreement with Nelson as the leading distributor of ASCD publications, products, and services in Canada.

This new agreement will improve Canadian educators’ access to award-winning and research-backed professional learning products and services that support educators in every role.

“Nelson has a strong reputation for meeting the needs of educators and the diverse needs of students, and we are excited for this new partnership for distribution in Canada,” said Deborah Delisle, ASCD CEO and Executive Director. “Outside of the United States, the largest number of ASCD members reside in Canada, and this new agreement will give ASCD members and all Canadian educators better access to ASCD’s award-winning products while also keeping costs low.”
