University of Toronto Press Distribution
Codasat Canada was founded (in 1999) in response to the needs
of small to medium-sized publishers wishing to sell their books in Canada. The
logistical difficulties of dealing across trans-national borders can be costly,
complicated and time consuming. Codasat Canada provides a solution by supplying
a comprehensive sales and distribution service. The economies of scale achieved
by Codasat Canada can then be passed on to client publishers.
Sandra Hargreaves, formerly President of Penguin Books Canada Ltd, and Thea Kooy,
formerly Vice President Operations of Penguin Books Canada Ltd, are the
principal shareholders of Codasat Canada.
