Get Involved

Join STC Ontario

A great way to get involved with the tech writing community is to become an STC Member. 

Membership in the Society for Technical Communication provides value through connections, education, and professional development throughout the year. Receiving contracts and job offers is not unheard of after networking with some of our members. STC Education courses, contests, and publications have also helped our members advance their careers.

If you decide to join the STC, be sure to select the Ontario community when prompted. This ensures that you become a member of our local chapter, giving you discounted access to our many events, access to the STC Ontario Job Bank, and voting privileges at our Annual General Meeting. 

Contact us for more information.
