Frequently Asked Questions
There are currently four groups in the CDPC | CEDC community.
CDPC | CEDC is the main bilingual group that everyone is a part of; enrolment is automatic once an account is open within the Centre community.
CEDC– Français is a group for Francophone practitioners. All discussions within this group are in French.
The Cabinet of Career Development Curiosities is a bilingual group for those that are curious about research in our field. It is a place to share all our career development curiosities. This group also has specific discussions on the various article summaries posted in the CDPC | CEDC Library. Conversations in this group may be in English or French. All members of the CDPC | CEDC can join this group. Group membership is not automatic.
There is also a CEC | Newfoundland & Labrador Group which is an internal/private group for CDPs working in Newfoundland & Labrador. Group membership is by request; approval is granted by the group moderators, upon confirmation that you are a CDP in Newfoundland/Labrador.
We encourage you to join the groups that you are interested in and participate where you feel comfortable! The purpose of these groups is to share expertise and experiences with each other. We would love to learn from you.

To access the library, select the book icon that is located on the far-right hand side of the menu that is located at the top of the community. Or visit cdpc-cedc.ca/library/
To clarify, the research literature shared in the Library is done via a summary of the article written or approved by the CDPC l CEDC Librarian, Dr. David Redekopp, rather than the actual article. Each summary is built from both French and English articles and links to those articles are included in the summary. Some of the actual articles will be freely available, but some may need to be purchased.
