Keynote Speaker Donnalee Bell is the Managing Director of the Canadian Career Development Foundation in Ottawa. She has led a wide range of national, provincial and territorial career and labour force development initiatives. She is passionate about the career development field and is coming to PEI to shed some light on the potential results of strengthening career development, training, certification, awareness, and initiatives across the country. She will also provide insight into the labour market and workforce development goals of governments, employers, and communities across Canada. Presentation The CDA of PEI is very pleased to announce we have engaged the services of Carvo Group to develop the first provincial labour force profile of those who provide career related services to the public on PEI. Over 400 people across PEI have been contacted either through a survey or a key informant interview. The information collected through this project will enable us to better understand our workforce, explore new and exciting opportunities for our members, and assist us in expanding our reach to anyone who may be interested in contributing to the growth of our field. Detry Carragher of Carvo Group will present the results of the PEI Career Development Labour Force Profile. Other discussions National certification for Career Development Professionals/Practitioners is currently available in several provinces to those who meet the specified criteria grounded in the Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners. At our conference, you will hear that CDA of PEI is currently working towards offering training to meet the minimum requirements of certification to its members. Also, you will hear more details about the Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Development Professionals/Practitioners presently being updated and how CDA of PEI is involved.
