One-year option

NEW! Two-year option (5% membership discount)

Long-time members know that belonging to the association has its benefits. This year we're focusing on providing even more member services and discounts to encourage membership growth. The longer a member stays in Editors Canada, the more likely they are to be engaged in the association and reap the rewards we offer. We want to encourage long-term membership so starting March 1, 2016, members who renew for two years will receive a 5% discount on their membership fee.

Pay online now to join Editors Canada for two years. (Note: The two-year option is not available for emeritus members and student affiliates.)
