We see an excellent opportunity to support Canadian educators and leaders with quality resources that will both inspire and provide practical tools and strategies.

Education services provider Solution Tree has partnered with Canadian educational publisher Nelson Education Ltd. to distribute and market Solution Tree’s research-based professional learning resources to Canadian customers. This partnership taps Nelson’s relationships and long-standing commitment to the Canadian educational community.

Greg Nordal, president and CEO of Nelson Education, noted that, “As Canada’s leading provider of educational materials, Nelson Education is very pleased to announce our exclusive partnership with Solution Tree. Since 1914, Nelson’s purpose has been to enable the success of Canadian students and educators. Solution Tree uniquely positions us to fulfill that mission through quality professional learning resources that address critical areas such as school improvement, professional learning communities, leadership, and assessment.”

Commenting on the value that the new partnership brings to educators, Chris Besse, senior vice president and managing director at Nelson, stated, “We see an excellent opportunity to support Canadian educators and leaders with quality learning resources that will inspire them personally, fuel them professionally, and provide practical tools and strategies that will support success both at the district and school levels.” Robb Clouse, publisher of Solution Tree Press, noted that this new partnership will provide greater exposure to their complement of authors, particularly those with Canadian connections such as Michael Fullan, Andy Hargreaves, Wayne Hulley, Susan Stephenson, and Damian Cooper.

Customers will immediately find that ordering Solution Tree resources will be faster and more efficient through this new distribution arrangement. Effective April 1, 2010, Nelson Education has exclusive marketing and distribution rights to all Solution Tree and Marzano Research Laboratory print, digital, and online resources. Solution Tree Education Canada will continue to operate under the direction of Director of Sales Donald “Stubby” McLean. This satellite office of Solution Tree will continue to provide professional development throughout Canada with trainings and workshops at school sites, as well as national conferences.
