You can volunteer from a minimum of 1 day to the full 4 days (including pre-conference workshops) and attend sessions when not volunteering. 

Deadline to submit a brief application: Friday, December 1, 2023

  • Connect with over 1,000 professionals from the career development, education, community, government and the private sector 
  • Expand your knowledge of career development and best practices from across Canada 
  • Network and attend sessions when not volunteering 

Who Should Volunteer?

Volunteer Requirements:
  • It is preferable that volunteers are from the Ottawa area. If you are not from the Ottawa area, CERIC cannot assist with funds related to travel, accommodations or out-of-pocket expenses. 
  • Volunteers must be available for at least 7 hours over the 4 days. This could mean one full 7-hour shift, or two 3.5 hour shifts.
