Toronto, ON – Nelson is Canada’s leading, and longest standing educational publisher on an ongoing journey of digital transformation. Exiting the post-secondary publishing space in 2020, Nelson’s primary focus today is on the K12 market.  From coast-to-coast-to-coast, Nelson has established its position as a market leading education technology business and continues to grow its market share with its digital education eco-system, Edwin. Nelson is announcing the next stage in its digital transformation through its partnership with Lakeside Book Company, a third-party logistics company, to carry out its physical distribution business at its Canadian location beginning October 2022.

“Nelson’s story of digital transformation continues, while remaining steadfast in our commitment to being a partner with school boards and districts across the country and to deliver content that is relevant, curriculum aligned and engages all learners,” says Nelson CEO Steve Brown.

This singular focus on a 21st-century learning methodology to support educators and students has refocused the century-old giant into an agile and dynamic technology business, whilst still producing accurate and trusted content delivered in an engaging, learner-centric manner. To reflect this transition, Nelson will be relocating and modernizing its headquarters within the Greater Toronto area in early 2023.
