Bayard Canada and Hachette Canada Have Signed a Sales and Distribution Agreement for French Books for Young People Published by Editions Bayard Canada

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - May 17, 2016) - Bayard Canada is pleased to announce that as of July 1, 2016, the sales and distribution of French books for young people published by Éditions Bayard Canada will be carried out by Hachette Canada and its exclusive distribution partner, Socadis.

For several years, Bayard Canada has performed a triple role: publisher, marketer and distributor of Bayard Jeunesse products under its main brand, Bayard Canada Livres. Carrying out all three roles is challenging at all levels, requiring excellence in terms of content, commercial activities and logistics.

In a changing and evolving market, Bayard Canada must build on its good health and plan for its future. "We have chosen a major partner that represents more than 60 publishers in Canada and that will help us to develop our French products for young people. We have had the opportunity to meet several times with consummate professionals who recognize the mission of excellence being entrusted to them. Regular discussions with our youth editorial and marketing teams both highlight Hachette Canada's efforts to support our catalogue and assure them of our real commitment to quality and to the originality of our books for young people," says Hugues de Foucauld, Senior Executive of Bayard Canada.

French books for young people will continue to be available through independent bookstores, mass distribution and specialized distribution, ensuring maximum accessibility by schools, school boards and the general public.
