About Parasource

History

For almost 50 years, we have built strong partnerships and a reputation of being trustworthy, honest, fair, reliable, experienced and relational… and will continue to do so with integrity.

Expertise

Proudly Canadian, we understand our market's unique demographic and provide consultation on desired products to suppliers, retailers and consumers to ensure all needs are met.

Opportunity

In an effort to serve the whole Canadian Christian church, we saw an opportunity to bring together two great Canadian companies, David C Cook Distribution Canada and Augsburg Fortress Canada. Following the buyout from both American parent companies and merger, we set out to create a new name and brand that would capture the value and essence of what we do… and that is to serve!

Service is at the heart of everything we do at Parasource. It drives our mission to provide the whole Canadian Christian church with the resources it needs to do its ministry.
