Dates of existence



Founded in 1942, La Société des écrivains canadiens' mandate was to create a group for french language writers of Canadian citizenship (living in Canada or abroad) and francophone authors published in Canada or elsewhere. The society served as an advocacy group to protect the interests of Canadian literature and french language writers. Their general assembly is composed of members from across the country, including five members from Montreal, three from Quebec and four from other regions of Canada. The society hosted regional chapters that would organize local author discussions, conferences, and support the publication of the SEC Bulletin.
