Editors’ Association of Canada Announces New Certified Editors


Toronto, April 29, 2010—The Editors’ Association of Canada (EAC) is proud to announce that 10 more editors have achieved EAC’s top designation of Certified Professional Editor (CPE). Since EAC launched its certification program in 2006, a total of 14 editors have passed all four of EAC’s certification tests to earn the CPE designation.

In addition, more than 100 certification credentials have been awarded to editors who passed tests to earn the designations of Certified Proofreader, Certified Copy Editor and Certified Structural and Stylistic Editor.

« EAC certification is the only program of its kind in North America, and we are establishing high standards for editing, » says EAC President Michelle Boulton. « EAC’s certification credentials are not easily earned, and they are always well deserved. »

The editors who earned the Certified Professional Editor designation this year are:

Martha Ayim (Mississauga ON)
Anne Brennan (Richmond BC)
Iva Cheung (Vancouver BC)
Donna Dawson (Aurora ON)
Freya Godard (Toronto ON)
Tilman Lewis (Toronto ON)
Elizabeth Moreau (Ottawa ON)
Lynn Schellenberg (Stratford ON)
Sarah Wight (Toronto ON)
Merrie-Ellen Wilcox (Victoria BC)

As the number of editors holding EAC certification increases, so does the benefit of this program to businesses, governments, organizations and individuals looking for editors with high levels of knowledge, experience and skills. EAC certification continues to raise the profile of editing in the wider community, where the contributions that editors make to many different kinds of projects are not always well understood.

EAC’s 2010 Certification Tests

Registration for EAC’s 2010 certification tests opens in July 2010. Proofreading and Copy Editing tests will be offered on November 20, 2010 in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax. EAC offers study guides for each test to assist editors planning to write the certification tests.
