This page is not intended to be an index of Canadian writers. Rather, this is a starting place where you can look for a writer to hire or locate lists of Canadian writers.
Please do not ask to add personal pages. A link to a website that lists an extensive cross-section of Canadian writers (past or present) would be a welcome addition to this page.
