“I attended many sessions that offered information in areas that were very relevant to my work and offered new approaches that I didn’t know.” - Monica Scott, Career Outreach Consultant, University of Toronto Mississauga, ON
“This conference brings together career professionals to learn from one another so that we can better serve our target groups that include immigrants, students, Indigenous persons, older workers, the disabled, and others in career transition. In addition to education sessions there are inspiring keynote speakers and plenty of opportunities to share and network with others. If you attend just one conference per year, this should be it.” - Niall Trainor, Vocational Rehabilitation Consultant, Trainor Vocational Consulting Corp, BC
