The Editors’ Association of Canada (EAC) is pleased to announce that 14 candidates have successfully joined the ranks of professional editors as recognized by EAC’s landmark certification program. With nine new Certified Copy Editors and eight new Certified Stylistic Editors (including three editors who earned both Copy Editing and Stylistic Editing credentials), EAC has certified a total of 167 professionals since it launched the program in 2006.
“Certification represents excellence in editing, and we are thrilled that every year, more and more professional editors are becoming certified,” says EAC president Greg Ioannou. “Whether editors choose one or all four disciplines, the program offers a great way to demonstrate their skills to potential employers and to themselves.”

EAC created its 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. As recognition of certification grows, the benefits to businesses, governments, organizations and individuals seeking expert editors also increase.
