Supporting Canadians to Navigate Learning and Work: Canadian Standards & Guidelines for Career Development Professionals

The Canadian Career Development Foundation (CCDF) is partnering with the Canadian Council for Career Development (3CD) to implement the project, Supporting Canadians to Navigate Learning and Work.  The project will focus on:

The project began in September 2019 and ended in September, 2021.  It will built on the strong foundations established through the original S&Gs and the ongoing dedication of two 3CD working groups: the Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners (S&Gs) Working Group and the Certification Working Group.  It also built on the enormous efforts and investments of provincial associations in building professional identity, promoting professional development and advancing certification.

The new Pan-Canadian Competency Framework for Career Development Professionals details the skills, knowledge, and actions demonstrated by effective career development professionals, career influencers, career educators, and thought leaders.
