Career Information Partnership. CIP Status Report.
Welton Beauchamp Professional Centre, Ottawa (Ontario).
Employment and Immigration Canada explored, with potential partners, the feasibility of establishing a Canadian Career Information Partnership (CIP) network. A series of exploratory meetings was scheduled across Canada to determine: (1) gaps in information needed by youth and adults for effective career exploration, planning, and decision making; (2) effective ways to fill such gaps; and (3) the practicability of "pooling" of expertise and resources across jurisdictional boundaries. Participants agreed that the need for career and labor market information was acute, development of national and provincial career information databases was desirable, and information should be more accessible. The consensus was that career tabloids offered the most promising vehicle to short-term, high-impact success for the CIP network. Career tabloids provided an opportunity for ongoing interagency collaboration in development of a popular, inexpensive career information delivery vehicle already delivered to households and bulk-distributed to schools and agencies. At a CIP strategic planning meeting, all provinces and territories represented agreed in principle to collaborate on development of career tabloids aimed at Canadian households. The tabloid would be an all-inclusive, broad-based publication encompassing timely career information and articles and features on labor market trends, career planning process, and education and training options. Provincial and territorial CIPs were planned. (YLB)
