Why us?

Plain language

There’s a good reason we’re called Plainly Speaking. Our team members are recognized experts in plain language, and we’ve won 7 international awards for it.

Our writing is clear and accessible for everyone. We love everyday language and believe that simple is smart.


We speak (plainly) three languages: English, French and Spanish.

Our team includes a qualified English-French translator, so we can write content in both of Canada’s official languages.


Our small team packs a big punch. We have decades of experience in writing, editing, media, strategy, branding and more.

We can also connect you to our trusted design and web development partners.


Think of us as an extension of your team: people who share your goals, know your business and get the job done.

You’ll always deal with senior staff too – we’ll never hand you off.


Stories have been told since ancient times. They connect us and help us remember.

Our journalism and writing backgrounds mean we have a knack for spotting stories, which we use to bring your brand to life.
