The Etta St John Wileman Award for Lifetime Achievement is designed to recognize and celebrate individuals who have devoted their lives to enhancing the field of career development. If you know a leader who has made a significant and sustained contribution to the field, complete the nomination form by June 30, 2018.

The award seeks to:

  • Honour individuals who have established themselves as leaders within career development.
  • Recognize trailblazers who combine being a mentor, educator, advisor, advocate and role model.
  • Encourage people in Canada and around the world to celebrate those who have contributed so much to the career development profession.

Presented on a less than annual basis at the Cannexus National Career Development Conference in Ottawa, the award is given in the name of Etta St John Wileman. In the early 20th century, Wileman was a champion and crusader of career, work and workplace development in Canada.
