  • Canadian Home Education Resources
    Also known as CHER, they specialize in home schooling materials. If you only go to one place for home schooling materials, this is the place to go to. They have a huge selection of home schooling books, curriculum, kits, and other things. CHER is run by a home schooling family. They have been helping home schoolers since 1993. (Please let them know you heard about them here.)

    Note: CHER is an online store, but they are located in Calgary, so you can book a time in the CHER Preview Room to view your materials before purchasing them. To do this, you place your Preview order online, then call or email to book your time. You can also book a time to pick up your order, too.
