The gold standard of editing

Editors Canada created its professional certification program to promote and maintain professional standards of excellence, to help editors develop professionally, and to enhance the status of editing as a profession in Canada.

Editors Canada Professional Certification identifies editors who are at the top of their game. Being certified is recognition of an editor’s high level of professional knowledge and skill.

As recognition of professional certification continues to grow, the benefits increase for corporations, governments, not-for-profit organizations, educational organizations, publishing companies and individuals seeking professional editors with superior levels of knowledge, experience and skills.

Registration will open soon for Editors Canada’s 2024 professional certification exams in Copy Editing and Stylistic Editing. For more information, visit editors.ca/certification.
