Career Edge is proud to be a Supporting Organization at the Cannexus15 National Career Development Conference, to be held at the Ottawa Convention Centre, from January 26 – 28, 2015.

As a Supporting Organization, our President, Naguib Gouda, will host a networking breakfast session where attendees will discuss paid versus unpaid internships.

At this Cannexus Connections session discussion questions will include:

  •       When are unpaid internships acceptable?
  •       What’s the difference between unpaid internships and volunteer work?
  •       Why do paid internships matter?

Cannexus15 Conference delegates will also be informed and inspired by three exceptional keynote speakers:

  • Jaime Watt, Executive Chairman, Navigator Ltd & Public Affairs Commentator
  •       Dr Nancy Arthur, Professor & Associate Dean Research, Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary
  •       The Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson, 26th Governor General of Canada

In addition to the above, the Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC) will culminate their 10th anniversary celebrations at Cannexus15 with Spark!, a series of TEDx-style talks on diverse topics that will provide the “spark” for you to think differently about your work.
