” This document consolidates evidence-based Canadian and international research, along with input from professionals working in a wide range of delivery settings/communities with an equally wide range of individuals with diverse needs. The document delineates various impacts and associated evidence-based recommendations of measures to mitigate risks and/or capitalize on presenting opportunities. It also includes a variety of creative, out-of-the-box ideas for consideration as unprecedented times call for unprecedented creativity.”

Across the UK, careers service providers and career development professionals are gearing up to provide evidence-based responses to creative ways of supporting young people and adults in a CovID-19 post-crisis landscape.
