News Release

 We are delighted to announce that effective October 1, 2021 Thomas Allen & Son will assume the sales and distribution for Fitzhenry & Whiteside.  This move marks an important alliance between two independent Canadian publishers.  Fitzhenry & Whiteside will be able to concentrate on its publishing program of award-winning Canadian books and rights and Thomas Allen & Son, Canada’s oldest independent distributor, will effectively combine and ship orders, making ordering and customer service more efficient, thus saving customers time and effort.

 As of October 1st, all orders for Fitzhenry & Whiteside titles and associated imprints should be directed to Thomas Allen & Son.  Fitzhenry & Whiteside will continue to accept returns of books purchased directly from them until December 31, 2021.  Please continue to remit your payments for all Fitzhenry invoices to Fitzhenry. Payments and credit notes issued by Thomas Allen must be paid to Thomas Allen.

 Thomas Allen and Fitzhenry & Whiteside have been working side by side since Thomas Allen moved its operations to the Fitzhenry & Whiteside warehouse in 2016.  We are all excited to see what the future holds in Canadian publishing with this increased alliance.
