Career Professionals of Canada (“CPC”) is a member-run, volunteer-driven social enterprise. We are a leading national association for career practitioners supporting the Canadian labour market. We create opportunities for our members to gain contacts, credentials, and credibility within the field.
CPC operates virtually, capitalizing on the internet, online technology, and social media. We offer members a range of programs including professional development, certification, and weekly eNews. Networking opportunities include mastermind mentoring programs, tele-networking discussions, online forums, regional meet-ups, LinkedIn and Facebook groups, webinars, and online courses. There are volunteer opportunities, too – all of these offerings are available for the benefit of our members. As a bonus, CPC members often develop meaningful business and personal relationships through their online connections with other members.
In addition to helping members connect with colleagues, we provide business services such as liability insurance. We also help members to connect with individuals and organizations seeking their services.
The bottom line: we work with our members to help them to achieve success as they take their career and business to new horizons.
“After performing due diligence, I quickly uncovered the only organization in Canada helping career professionals get better at being career professionals – Career Professionals of Canada. Instantly after joining, I learned that this was much more than a typical association…that this was a place where I could ask questions and get answers to the tough issues I was facing.”
