Havent read it here before, will Air Canada lease out 1 B777-300ER and 1 B777-200LR?

There are two B777 available in the leasing market, the descrption fits to Air Canada B777s. One 42J/228Y and one 42J/307Y Seater.

If so, Is any Airline known to take them? What is the chance that Turkish Airlines will get them?

You may be referring to sale-leaseback transactions covering already-delivered aircraft, similar to the one below earlier this year. I believe there may have been another similar transaction.

I can't recall seeing anything indicating that AC has any firm commitments for more 77Ws and 77Ls than the total of 18 already ordered. I think 15 of the 18 have been delivered. 16 were ordered from Boeing and two are leased from ILFC.

IMMHO NOT before they have phased out the remaining (2x?) 343's in their fleet. I see those 343's are available on Speednews. Just my opinion...

They are still there, but Air Canada last month noted that they were anxious to get their two remaining 777s from Boeing so I can't see them wanting to suddenly wet-lease two birds to another operator.

Is it possible Airfax just collates reports and doesn't actually serve as a broker? So perhaps these planes are indeed sale-leaseback transactions as Viscount24 referenced and because the transaction hasn't been finalized yet, Airfax just collated a report saying two birds were on the market even though they will not be leaving AC's fleet.

Seems you are right Stitch. It's a "newsletter" published by Airfax Jet Transport Aircraft Markets. Info such as the serial no's, etc. are only accessible via an annual sub ($380).

Seems you are both correct. As Viscount24 said it might be a sale-leasback transaction, didnt thought of it, just saw two available B777.
Wishful thinking. In Turkey there are rumours going around Turkish Airlines might switch to an Boeing Long Haul Fleet, so I am looking around where they can obtain some in-shape B777s...

Is it possible Air Canada will wet-lease both A/C due to route cuttings?? seems especially North American Airlines have to cut capacity due to low demand?

Nope. AC needs all their 777s as the A340s are rapidly leaving the fleet. If DL needs 77Ls, there is few with IFLC or GE Capital.
