Overview

The essential Canadian guide – and reference shelf companion to The Chicago Manual of Style and The Canadian Encyclopedia.

The first edition (published in 1987 and selling over 7000 copies) established itself as an indispensable tool for editors, writers, journalists, government employees, students, teachers, librarians, copywriters, and marketing and public relations people – in short, anyone who uses Canadian English.

Editing Canadian English tackles the tricky style issues of writing in "Canadian" and sorts out the distinctions between British and American editorial style and language usage. Overall, this guide outlines where convention dictates certain usage and where a style decision comes down to choice. The four authors, all seasoned professionals with over one hundred years of editing experience among them, show readers how to make their own informed and consistent choices when dealing with peculiarly Canadian questions of usage.
