CERIC is launched. It is envisioned as an organization that will “facilitate a common cause in the career counselling sectors: to further the skills of career professionals and the services they offered in order to help people live more productive lives.”

It sets out to attract career professionals who are innovative thinkers and inspire them to be part of a major initiative that would provide leadership in career development in Canada, in an open and inclusive way – non-profit, national and multi-sector.
