Career Development for Public Good

Explore the 150 sessions; great rates still available! Registration is now closed!

Taking your 15th annual Cannexus Conference virtual allows us to address ongoing uncertainty during pandemic recovery but continue to provide an accessible, content-rich and value-packed opportunity for Canada’s career development communities to convene, share and learn.

Now more than ever, those providing career and employment services are essential. This is the moment to reimagine career development and its impact on education, the economy and social justice.

We are offering this virtual conference on a more relaxed schedule – up to five hours of sessions each day over four days starting at 12 pm ET to accommodate Canadian time zones plus the ability to access recordings for a full year.

Recognizing current financial constraints, this instalment of Cannexus will offer special pricing plus deep discounts for Groups, Students and members of Supporting Organizations.

Access to the Cannexus virtual conference platform will open the week of January 4, 2021. Registered delegates who have paid their registration fees will receive an email with their login credentials that week. Read our FAQ for more details.

A special thank you to our partners

"For the past few years (pre-Covid) our department funded 1-2 people to attend the Cannexus conference, and when they returned they gave the whole team a brief 'recap' of their learning. This year, we decided to prioritize funding our whole team to attend Cannexus virtually and do a group registration. We are a seven-person team and this is a great professional development opportunity for all of us."
