Find out how to become a member of the Writers’ Union of Canada. Learn more
I belong to the Writers Union of Canada because I believe that serious writing is serious work. It is real labour in the real world and, like all other jobs, if it is to be done well, it requires good working conditions and fair trade practices. TWUC fights to improve the working lives of writers and it needs our support.
We acknowledge the support of the Ontario Arts Council (OAC), an agency of the Government of Ontario, which last year funded 1,681 individual artists and 1,125 organizations in 216 communities across Ontario for a total of $52.8 million.
