CCO at OSCA: Conference Recap

CCO was the platinum sponsor of the Ontario School Counsellors’ Association (OSCA) conference for the second year in a row. The OSCA conference ran from November 10-12 in Toronto and attracted around four hundred delegates from across the province.

Highlights from the conference included:

| Addressing the Delegates

CCO Executive Director Paul Kitchin and a career college student addressed over 300 delegates before keynote speaker Ian Hanomansing.  

| Engaging with Counsellors

Throughout the conference, CCO representatives and career college students had the opportunity to engage with counsellors and share information. We received a lot of positive feedback about the sector and the association, as well as increased interest in learning more about the province’s career colleges.

| Showcasing Student Talent

In conjunction with this year’s conference theme, “Diversity: Vive la difference!”, we showcased a diverse selection of career college programs and pathways. Students from four member colleges participated in interactive demonstrations at our booth.
