NACC-CCO Conference

The joint NACC-CCO Conference held May 6th to 9th saw some very informative speeches from government officials.  Increased recognition of career colleges from politicians and stakeholders was a common refrain over the three days and a sign of the great strides we have made as a sector.

Please enjoy the videos of the following:

  • The keynote address by the Honourable Jason Kenney, PC, MP, Minister of Employment and Social Development and Multiculturalism, in which he praised career colleges for being on the front line in developing a skilled workforce, which will be of paramount importance to Canadians in the coming years.  See it here.
  • A presentation by Liberal MP and Labour Critic Roger Cuzner in which he mentioned that career colleges have been doing great work for decades, which is testament to the adaptability of career colleges.  See it here.
