What attendees have had to say about Cannexus:
“As a Cannexus first-timer, I walked away from the conference feeling like I had found “my people.” I love that I was able to find a community of individuals who were as passionate about career development as I was and am leaving with so many new friends and colleagues that I had the pleasure of learning from, over just a few short days.”
 - Carol Lam, Co-ordinator
Career Exploration, University of Toronto
The conference is presented by CERIC and supported by The Counselling Foundation of Canada and a broad network of supporting organizations.
