Welcome to Homeschool Canada!
Homeschool Canada began in 2011 with Lee Fisher, who had a vision to help homeschool families from all across Canada connect with each other, and to provide a central place where people can find information about homeschooling in Canada. She invited me, Deb, out for dinner one evening, and after jotting our ideas down on a napkin (ok, several napkins), we found ourselves burning the midnight oil doing domain name searches, and researching starting up a website.
Fast forward to the spring of 2013. This time we felt the need for a central place for people to buy and sell gently used curriculum. So we made space in my basement to house the inventory, and our online store was launched on August 21st, 2013.
In 2014, Lee opened up a new business, Langley Cheer & Athletics. We decided that I would carry on Homeschool Canada and she would pour her energy into her Langley Cheer & Athletics. It has been a tremendous pleasure working with Lee, and I wish her the greatest success as she builds her cheer club. We continue to be great friends and support each other wholeheartedly in each of our endeavors. Homeschool Canada moved to a new location in 2015, and began to bring in new products to add to our gently used selection.
We learned in 2016 that Cornerstone Learning Resources made the difficult decision to close their business. Homeschool Canada purchased all of their remaining inventory, and we wish both owners Pauline and Cynthia many blessings in what the future has in store for them and their families.
With the acquiring of all this new inventory, and the influx of Cornerstone’s customers, came the need to hire a full time staff member. So early in 2017 Wendy Janzen came on board full time to help with the rapid growth Homeschool Canada was experiencing. She brings with her many years of experience in the book industry, and has been a valued addition to the business.
