Welcome to the JCTC site

A word from the Committee

The Joint Committee on Terminology in Canada (JCTC) welcomes you to its Web site, a meeting point for terminologists from across the country and all those committed to this profession.

By registering with the Directory of Terminologists in Canada, you will contribute to increasing our profession’s reputation and visibility in Canada. The Directory can be used for example to find a particular terminologist.

Who we are

The JCTC is a multisectoral partnership, whose mission is to promote the profession of terminologist in Canada and to increase the importance of terminology in university teaching programs.

The JCTC was created in the wake of the Focus Days on Terminology, organized in 2003 by the Terminology Standardization Directorate of the Government of Canada’s Translation Bureau. The Committee’s members come from universities and the private, public and parapublic sectors.
