TOPIC:  CERIC: Advancing Knowledge in Career Development

 The Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC) is at the forefront of career development in this country. A charitable organization, CERIC supports career and employment counsellors in increasing the economic and social well-being of Canadians through improved quality, effectiveness and accessibility of career development programs.

CERIC does its work by funding research and learning projects partnerships. Some examples of recent projects include the Career Practitioner Role in Supporting People with Mental Health Challenges, Hope-Centred Career Development for University/College Students and Look Before You Leap: Self-Employment Survival Strategies.

It also offers three main strategic programs. ContactPoint (OrientAction in French) is a multi-sector online community for professionals in career development providing interactive networking, resources and learning. The Canadian Journal of Career Development is a peer-reviewed publication of career-related academic research and best practices. Cannexus is Canada's largest bilingual National Career Development Conference promoting innovative approaches for career counselling, attracting 800 delegates each year.
