Profile

Because we understand the importance of effective and reliable communication, Dominique Fortier’s professional editing services can provide valuable support for all aspects of text production, no matter what form it’s in, or the stage it’s at.

Whether it’s a short promotional text, or a more comprehensive work being published online or on paper, we will ensure that your final product surpasses your needs and expectations.

For a number of years, she worked at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, where she acquired extensive experience in the editing and revision of texts and project management, within a bilingual English-French environment. During this time, she edited a wide range of texts, adapting these to the requirements of clients in the Museum’s many divisions.

For the past twenty years, Dominique has had her own editing business, putting her editing experience to good work in several fields, including communications, history, Native and Inuit cultures, folk arts, archaeology, ethnology, museology, applied arts, children material, educational material, environment, new technologies, and a wide range of administrative documents. 

Her clients include a number of federal and Quebec departments and agencies, as well as municipalities and companies whose primary purpose involves providing their citizens, their populations, and their clients with services in Canada’s two official languages.

From 2013 to 2016, Dominique Fortier has written monthly a post in French for the The Editors' Weekly, the official blog of Canada's national editorial association.

Ainsi mettons-nous à votre service une vingtaine d'années d'expérience diversifiée dans plusieurs domaines, notamment les communications, l'histoire, les cultures amérindienne et inuite, les arts populaires, l'archéologie, l'ethnologie, la muséologie, les métiers d'art, le matériel pour enfants et le matériel pédagogique, l'environnement, les nouvelles technologies et les documents administratifs de tous genres. N'hésitez donc pas à vous en prévaloir!

De 2013 à 2016, Dominique Fortier a rédigé un billet en français tous les mois pour le blogue officiel de l'association nationale des réviseurs du Canada intitulé L'Hebdomadaire des réviseurs.
