Three good reasons for all Maine companies to consider the Canadian market:

“Wayside Publishing was honored to be included in the MITC trade mission to the Greater Toronto Area. The Canadian education market is exciting for a language company. We hope to not only earn Canadian educators’ business, but to incorporate them into the feedback ecosystem that fuels the future of Wayside learner experiences in all markets. The MITC trade mission was a matchless opportunity to begin building our Canadian network.”
