Canadian Career Development Foundation (CCDF)

From 1985 to 1999, I was president of the Canadian Career Development Foundation, formerly called the Canadian Guidance and Counselling Foundation. From 1990 to 1994 the Foundation managed the $17,000,000.00 CAMCRY initiative (Creation And Mobilization of Counselling Resources for Youth). CAMCRY created a network of 41 projects located at 17 colleges and universities across Canada devoted to developing and implementing creative and innovative approaches to career development for young people. In subsequent years, the Foundation coordinated the Career Action Plan, Building Towards Better Career Counselling, and Career Development in Action: Pulling Together. Together these projects represent close to 20 million dollars in funding for program development and implementation, making them one of the largest career counselling initiatives in Canadian history. CCDF continues to exercise active leadership in career development in Canada, training coordinators and career practitioners in many provinces, promoting the development of National Standards for Career Development, developing innovative career development resources for practitioners and clients, and taking an active role in the CRWG.
