About this event

CDPCBO is very excited to tell you about a feasibility study that is exploring the establishment of a national Career Development Professional Institute and to invite you to co-create its vision.

As part of the Responsive Career Pathways Initiative, the Future Skills Centre [https://fsc-ccf.ca/] and Blueprint [https://www.blueprint-ade.ca] commissioned several research papers which have generated ideas for strengthening career and employment services.

One consistent theme across these papers was a deep need for stronger supports for the sector. To explore this need, FSC has asked the Canadian Career Development Foundation and MixtMode Consulting to conduct a feasibility study to explore the establishment of a national Career Development Professional Institute that could potentially focus on 6 main objectives:

  • Providing a home for the Competency Framework, National Profile, Code of Ethics, and associated resources and a hub to promote their integration and application
  • Supporting CDPs to access basic, foundational training, at no to low cost, on the career development process, helping to ensure a common language and an understanding of the full scope of career development practice
  • Creating and nurturing a community of practice, where CDPs can exchange and grow with respect to their practice, application of learning, and further development needs
  • Establishing a central hub as a one-stop for CDPs to find out about the full range of existing training available to them, as well as professional supports/associations and national/international developments that matter to our profession
  • Building a strong evidence base for our sector to inform policy and practice
  • Being a unified voice to advocate for our sector and our critical contribution to the socio-economic health of individuals, communities, and our nation.

You are warmly invited to join me and other colleagues in a series of consultation sessions to share your reactions, ideas, and input on the vision for this Professional Institute.

The session will be held on Zoom and you can book a one hour session via the Register button. There are various dates and times to choose from with a 10-person maximum limit per session.

If you or your place of work want to hold a separate consultation for your team, please contact Gillian Johnston at gjohnston@cdpcbo.org to arrange a time.

All consultations must be completed by end of day May 12th.
