February Speaker’s Night Presentation – What’s new in the new edition of Editing Canadian English

The third edition of EAC’s guide to ‘only-in-Canada’ editorial issues will be launched later this month. As it turns out, a large portion of the ECE team hails from the NCR branch, and several of them will be on hand at this month’s branch speaker night to preview the new edition.

Like the Canada.ca Web Content Style Guide presented last month, this new ECE edition is, in more than one sense, a product of the Internet age. It covers new issues that have emerged since the second edition was published in 2000. As well, its distribution has been adapted to the Internet age: Editing Canadian English ‘3.0’ will be offered initially as an online, subscription-based product, and later in print-on-demand format.

Anne Louise Mahoney, Heather Ebbs, Marion Soublière, Carolyn Brown, Laura Paquet and Kevin Burns will present highlights of the new edition.
When: Wednesday, February 18, 7:30 p.m.
Where: Capital Hill Hotel & Suites, 88 Albert Street, Laurier Room
Free for members, $10 for non-members
Pre-registration is not required for this event.
