Career Professional Community Resources & Support

Why you need to join Career Professionals of Canada membership

This global crisis has certainly taken all of us aback. It has caused us to rethink a lot of things that we’ve been doing to support our clients and take care of ourselves.

How We Are Supporting Our Community

We’re thinking a lot about our member community and we hope you’re staying safe and healthy. As a member services organization operating virtually, we are able to remain open. You can still access all member benefits. Our courses and certification programs are also still running.

  • All career professionals are warmly invited to network with your colleagues on CPC’s Facebook Group. Build community, share strategies, and get advice from your colleagues across the nation. Get live support from CPC’s Masterminds and members.
  • We realize that many career professionals may be concerned about their financial situation at this time. We are primarily a volunteer-based organization that relies on membership income to support our programs, but we also know that we need to do what we can to help you through the coming days. So, we have extended our $50 off annual membership offer through April 30, 2020.
  • For our CPC member community, we have established weekly remote support “check-in” meetings via Zoom. While we are not medical experts, CPC is about community and we want to support you as best we can. Members can register through the events schedule and access all previous meeting recordings on the Career Club. Sharon Graham is providing members with regular updates and information on her member blog.

For many career professionals, this might be the first time that they are working remotely. Here are some vetted resources that you can use for your business and your clients. Many of these are handouts that you can print out and distribute or  email to colleagues and clients.

All resources listed below are free.

Fact Sheets for You and Your Clients

First and foremost, look at your federal, provincial, and local government resources for up-to-date information.

Resources for Employers & Employees

Check your local, provincial, and territorial chambers of commerce, health offices, employment services (funders), and worker compensation boards. All of these organizations have Fact Sheets on their processes.

Mental Health and Coping

We are grateful to all the CPC members who have provided us with links to these resources.  If anyone has a good resource to share, please post it here.
