In a series of new videos, project partners discuss their experiences working with CERIC and provide recommendations to others seeking funding. CERIC provides funding and other support in its efforts to improve the economic and social well-being of Canadians through advancing career development knowledge and skills.
Taking place January 22-24, 2018 in Ottawa, the Cannexus18 National Career Development Conference will feature this just-announced lineup of Mega Sessions with well-known presenters on highly pertinent subjects – from the role of career development in mental health to career service innovation in the post-secondary sector:
A new CERIC-funded research study led by the Sheridan Centre for Elder Research will address the gap in knowledge about the state of senior entrepreneurship in Canada by investigating the experiences, needs and interests of individuals who have either launched or would like to start their own business after age 50. With the country’s demographic shift to an aging workforce well underway, increasing numbers of older Canadians are turning to entrepreneurship; however very little is known about them and what kind of career guidance and support they require.
The CERIC volunteer Board of Directors for the upcoming year is now in place, reflecting a broad cross-section of the diverse career development field from across Canada.
With a theme of “Extending our Reach, Expanding our Impact,” the 2016 CERIC Annual Report highlights our efforts as a charitable organization to engage new audiences with our proactive research and learning partnerships. Our overarching vision for this work continues to be increasing the economic and social well-being of Canadians through career development.
