DO YOU NEED freelance or salaried editorial assistance? Find the right editor for your project.
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?
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.

Consult our Definitions of editorial skills to determine what kind of help you need. Editors can put many different skills to work on your text.
You can find even more detail on several core skills in our Professional Editorial Standards.
