CIPH Engages Student Business Leaders

In January, CIPH sponsored JDC Central and JDC West, in Halifax and Calgary respectively. The experiences could not have been more different.


Unfortunately, JDC Central was cancelled due to inclement weather. If you will recall much of the East Coast was being impacted by the “Bomb Cyclone” and too many students were unable to reach the destination to participate. Needless to say this was disappointing for all, but CIPH was still able to maximize this opportunity. Approximately 100 students were present and since CIPH was the only sponsor on the ground we took advantage of the situation to engage them. Over a casual lunch, CIPH made a presentation to those students and faculty in attendance, emphasizing the range of careers within our member organizations. It was very well received and was followed by 30 minutes of individual questions with students.


Though this was not the complete engagement opportunity we had planned there was still value and complete access to participant resumes is located here. There might be just the person you are looking for to add to your team.



JDC West went off as planned with more than 600 participants from 12 post-secondary institutions in Western Canada.  At the event we had a small team of volunteers from Calgary Region members who were engaging students in the corporate showcase, sharing the same message of the variety of opportunity available in our thriving industry, and helping students to see how their courses of study are preparing them for important roles.


“The event was a huge success. Many great conversations with an engaged group of future leaders.”

Resumes from all student participants are available from this event and can be accessed here.


These events help the association, members and industry connect with future of the Canadian workforce. As a sponsor CIPH, on behalf of its members, is able to engage with this target group making them aware of the opportunity and vitality of our sector.
