After initially being planned as a hybrid, Cannexus22 will now be a fully virtual conference. The conference takes place January 24 - 26, 2022. In 2021, our virtual conference drew more than 2,300 participants.
This 16th annual Cannexus conference will once again provide an accessible, content-rich and value-packed opportunity for Canada's career development communities to convene, share and learn.
Career development for public good
Cannexus brings together those across the career and workforce development ecosystem to explore research, policy and practice. The conference will continue to reimagine the impact of career development on education, the economy and social justice as pandemic recovery unfolds.
You will be able to access:
Introducing a BONUS virtual conference day, Cannexus Reflections on Feb. 4. Scheduled to take place just over a week after the conference ends, all attendees are invited to attend this day (included in your registration). The bonus day is intended to help you to reflect on what you heard and to facilitate you taking action.
In light of ongoing financial constraints, this instalment of Cannexus will continue to offer special Gratitude rates plus deep discounts for groups, students and members of supporting organizations.
Planning a hybrid Cannexus for 2023!
Cannexus23 is expected to be a hybrid conference with a live in-person portion to be held at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa, Canada and a virtual portion. It will take place January 23-25, 2023. In the past, our live conferences have drawn more than 1,200 delegates and our virtual conferences more than 2,300, making Cannexus the largest bilingual conference of its kind in the country.
This dual format for the 17th annual conference offers the best of both worlds. No matter how you participate, Cannexus will provide an accessible, content-rich and value-packed opportunity for Canada's career development communities to convene, share and learn.
