About – Canada

We promote excellence in business journalism in Canada, as an extension of the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing. We organize training and professional development events, and a new division of SABEW’s prestigious Best in Business contest.

We held our first Toronto event in 2010, and since then have hosted workshops in investigative journalism and other training seminars.

We hope to do more: Please contact a committee member below if you have questions, ideas, or just want to help.
