The newest edition of the Canadian Journal of Career Development (CJCD) has just been published, kicking off the journal’s 17th year of disseminating the work of career researchers from Canada and around the world. Featuring an exciting new cover design, this issue explores a range of topics, many probing the career and employment experiences of distinct populations.
Canadian schools now have a new resource to enable them to deliver more culturally responsive career guidance and better integrate the growing number of newcomer and refugee students who have lived through the trauma of war, family separation and loss. The CERIC-published guide was released at the Cannexus National Career Development Conference in Ottawa where more than 1,000 career educators and counsellors gathered.
CERIC will fund the development of a new international collection, Career Theory and Models at Work: Ideas for Practice, to be edited by Dr Nancy Arthur (University of Calgary), Dr Roberta Neault (Life Strategies) and Dr Mary McMahon (The University of Queensland, Australia). The goal of the project is to provide career practitioners with training in a range of contemporary and emerging theories and models developed from different countries around the world.
Cannexus is Canada’s largest bilingual National Career Development Conference and will take place January 22-24, 2018 in Ottawa. The conference will bring together 1,000 professionals from education, community, government and private sectors to exchange information and explore innovative approaches in career development.
