All change at Life in Québec Magazine

Quebec City (Quebec) Tuesday 2 September 2014 – With immediate effect, Jason Enlow has been appointed as the editor of the Quebec region’s English-language publication Life in Québec Magazine (a division of Média Trois Canons inc).

Andrew Greenfield, President of Média Trois Canons inc. and Publisher of Life in Québec Magazine explained ‘As a result of our success we’re currently going through a period of expansion. We’re delighted to welcome someone of Jason Enlow’s calibre to the team. We conducted an extensive period of interviews with some superb candidates, but Jason stood out. His experience and knowledge across the breadth of the media spectrum is something that appealed to the management group. We’re looking forward to seeing Jason take Life in Québec Magazine to the next level and we’re confident with the quality we’ve hired that we’ll get there quicker than originally planned.’

Farnell Morisset, Managing Editor of Life in Québec Magazine stated ‘It’s great to have Jason aboard. Life in Québec Magazine is one of those publications that straddles numerous different spheres – local and national, English and French, online and traditional print, among others – and that makes for particular challenges when trying to get the best stories and ideas out there expressed in the most effective way possible. Having Jason on the team to help navigate between these worlds can only make our articles that much more engaging and thought-provoking for our readers.’

Jason-Enlow_editorJason Enlow, Editor of Life in Québec Magazine ‘I first met Andrew at an event in 2010. His booth was right beside the one I was manning for the organization I worked for at that time. We got talking and it wasn’t long before he asked if I wouldn’t mind keeping an eye on things while he popped out for a minute. That’s how I see things with Life in Québec Magazine; Andrew, Farnell and I got talking, and it wasn’t long before they asked me if I would like to keep an eye on their magazine. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse. I’ve been writing for www.lifeinquebec.com pretty much since that day when Andrew and I first crossed paths and this next step seems like the logical one to take. I’m looking forward to my new role as editor and I’m hoping you, the reader, will give me a hand with your ideas, questions and comments. Life in Québec Magazine is a good publication, let’s make it a great one.’

More about the new editor:

LiQ_Mag_Abonnez-vousA writer has to have a keen sense of observation and a desire to experience new things; two characteristics that sum up Jason Enlow. A member of the Writer’s Club in his youth, he started contributing to the Ontario newspaper the Burlington Post covering a range of subjects of interest to him and his peers. He also volunteered for a local television station, scripting and hosting his own show. This interest in reporting led Jason to study Radio and Television at Ryerson University in Toronto (Canada’s most established and recognized school of media production and broadcasting). His courses included media writing, communication, management, sales, advertising, English literature and the psychology of perception, art and creativity. He graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Arts in 1991.

Jason is not one to sit still for too long and has been fortunate to work in many media-related occupations: stage manager, microwave truck operator, DJ, sound technician, theatre manager, archivist, camera operator, photographer, musician, composer and voice over artist. Shortly after graduation, Jason wrote for the Smokey River Express newspaper in Alberta.

Jason moved to Quebec City in 1997 to work for Global Television. After his job as master control operator was transferred to Calgary, he went to work for a local internet start-up where he wrote about healthy eating and directed nutrition videos. Jason also spent time as an editorial assistant for the CBC radio shows Quebec AM and Breakaway. He returned to Global Television as a researcher, writing and conducting interviews for Global News in Montreal and the local news show, QC Magazine.

Shortly before Global closed its Quebec City studio in 2009, Jason accepted a position at a Vision School in the region where he taught English, art, drama, ethics, religious culture, and social studies. He also wrote and directed their school productions. Jason moved to the Central Quebec School Board in 2010 after his plans to attend University Laval fell through. He had been informed that he could bypass half the courses to become an English second language teacher, but that changed just before he was scheduled to begin classes.

Jason returned to substitute teaching and ended up at Ste-Foy Elementary where he was encouraged to apply to work as a behaviour/special education technician. He also wrote the school newsletters, brochures and school procedures and protocols. While at the school he contributed to numerous local newspapers covering a range of education-related topics. He is also credited with creating a new logo for the school.

Since the August 2010 launch of LifeinQuebec.com, Jason has had many articles published on the region’s popular English-language news and information portal. He’s interviewed many people, among them celebrated Cape Breton fiddler Natalie MacMaster, and Jon Anderson – former lead singer of the progressive rock band Yes. He’s also written feature articles for Life in Quebec Magazine about hockey player and rising star Jacob Sweeney, and Olympic speed skater Erika Huszar.

Jason is also employed as a writer, translator and content developer for a tech company in Quebec.

In what spare time he has, Jason enjoys keeping busy with his wife and children and writing short stories and poetry. He has also appeared in two Quebec Art Company productions, Arsenic and Old Lace and Our Town.
