CERIC presents Cannexus — a bilingual National Career Development Conference designed to promote the exchange of information and explore innovative approaches in the areas of career counselling and career development.

Cannexus will next take place January 23-25, 2017 at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa. It is Canada’s largest conference for career counsellors, career development professionals and the career services sector! Cannexus is growing — with more than 900 participants from across Canada and internationally — and we are confident that it will keep expanding in scope and impact.

Conference delegates can listen to world-class keynotes and choose from 130+ education sessions. Topics include:

  • Effective counselling & facilitation techniques
  • Labour market information
  • Career assessment tools
  • Post-secondary & graduate employment
  • Talent management & leadership development
  • Social media in job search
  • Working with diverse populations (newcomers, youth-at-risk, Indigenous)

Cannexus provides delegates the opportunity to participate in both of Canada’s national languages and simultaneous interpretation is available for all keynote addresses. Approximately one third of the sessions are delivered in French or with simultaneous interpretation. The conference also features an Exhibitor Showcase.

By participating in Cannexus, conference delegates will benefit by enhancing professional development, organizational productivity and client service effectiveness.

Cannexus is supported by The Counselling Foundation of Canada with a broad network of supporting organizations.
