The Writers' Union of Canada acknowledges that our office is in Tkaronto, a Mohawk word which translates to “Where The Trees Meet The Water” or “The Gathering Place.” Tkaronto is bound by Dish With One Spoon, a treaty between the Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee to share the territory, promote peace, and protect the land. TWUC acknowledges them and any other Nations who care for the land — recorded and unrecorded — and we pay our respects to Canada’s first storytellers.

Please note: Union staff work hybrid schedules (both remotely and in the office). The best way to reach us is by email.
