Abstract:

The Pan-Canadian Study of Career Development Practices in K-12 Public Schools is a snapshot of how guidance counsellors' time is used and also a snapshot of the current presence of career education in schools. It has identified regional differences in the employment status of counsellors, in the delivery of career education to both parents and students, and in the amount of time spent on guidance and non-guidance activities.

Each of the provinces and territories has different resources and priorities. These obviously have a bearing on how guidance counsellors utilize their time and whether career education is seen as a priority by the provinces/districts/boards. The current study has identified several conclusions and future considerations.
