Welcome to Editors Toronto, a branch of Editors Canada!

Mission Statement

To build and nurture a welcoming community of editors in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and to provide education, resources, and professional opportunities.

Vision Statement

We are the voice of editors within the GTA, representing them when communicating with the Editors Canada national office, the National Executive Committee (NEC), other branches/twigs, and the community at large. Our vision is to make Editors Toronto members aware of and engaged with the services and opportunities offered by the branch and the NEC. We strive to always innovate the way we do things to align with the needs of our current members and draw in potential new members.

About Editors Toronto

We are the Toronto branch of Editors Canada — the only national association devoted to editors and the editing profession, with more than 1,300 members across the country and more than 300 in Ontario. Editors Toronto is an active, vibrant group of freelance and in-house editors who work with organizations and individuals in the corporate, not-for-profit, technical, government, digital, publishing, and academic sectors in Canada and around the world. We meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month, except in June, July, August, and December, for an engaging program followed by discussion and networking opportunities. 

Like Editors Canada, Editors Toronto offers and supports professional development, maintains and promotes high standards of editing, and helps salaried and freelance editors to collaborate and network. Our branch also occasionally partners with related professional associations and learning institutions, such as Professional Writers Association of Canada, University of Toronto, and Canadian Authors Association.

Learn more about our executive meetings, volunteer opportunities, finding work, or hiring an editor. And be sure to check out our upcoming programs, where we feature engaging speakers on topics of interest to editors, followed by a Q&A. A mix-and-mingle session follows the presentation, providing all attendees with the opportunity to network. Meetings are FREE for members, $5 for student members, and $10 for non-members.

Professional development

Need professional development training in your workplace? Offered year-round, these in-house  training seminars  are taught by in-demand editorial professionals and can be customized to suit your needs.
