 Hire an EditorReady to hire an editor?

Post a job vacancy on our job board.

Post your job vacancy to our members' area of our website. 1,500 Editors Canada members from coast to coast will be able to access your post. This is an efficient and free way to promote your opportunity to both in-house and freelance editors.

 

Want to search for an editor?

Search our Online Directory of Editors.

You'll find detailed descriptions of specialities from over 400 editors across the country. Search by name, location editorial specialty, and more. This is a flexible tool for identifying editors with specific skills and knowledge.

Once you have shortlisted your candidates, contact the editors directly. For a freelance project, you'll probably want to discuss the details of the project, check the editor's availability and request an estimate. An editor will often ask you to send a representative sample of the material so that he or she can prepare a realistic estimate.

 

Editors Canada Certification

Editors Canada Certification sets objective standards for recognizing high levels of knowledge and skill. It's the gold standard of editing.

The Government of Ontario, the Government of Nova Scotia, several national non-governmental organizations and the Certified General Accountants' Association of Canada are just some of the organizations that recognize the value of Editors Canada certification when they hire editors.

You can find even more detail on several core skills in our Professional Editorial Standards.
