January 25, 2023 Announcing Future Skills at Cannexus23!

CERIC is delighted to announce that we are partnering with the Future Skills Centre (FSC) to bring you a dedicated half-day stream of programming called Future Skills @Cannexus as part of the in-person conference.

At Cannexus23, Future Skills will showcase a varied program that highlights a vision for career guidance in Canada and delves deep into future trends and initiatives. Future Skills @Cannexus will take place the morning of Wednesday, January 25 in Ottawa. 

It is included in all in-person Cannexus registrations. If you register for Cannexus, no separate Future Skills registration is required. Check out what to expect from this Future Skills stream in the in-person Cannexus conference program.

What to expect at a hybrid Cannexus

Whether you are part of the in-person or virtual conference, you will:

Gain knowledge from 150+ live and on-demand sessions in both English and French

Meet like-minded delegates and build connections through networking activities

Be informed and inspired by diverse, world-class keynotes and presenters

Engage with organizations that offer programs, products and services to help your work

Have access to session recordings for six months to keep learning

Cannexus will take place Jan. 23-25, 2023, both virtually and in Ottawa, Canada. The virtual and in-person portions are essentially separate events with different sessions taking place within the greater whole of the hybrid umbrella. But there will be multiple touchpoints throughout the conference where virtual and in-person delegates can interact. Regardless of which format you choose (it is Cannexus your way) you will still be part of a unique gathering where you will explore innovative approaches in career and workforce development, and connect with peers from across Canada and around the world.
