The official launch of the new Unique and Competent Program took place on September 22, 2017 at the head office of the Eastern Ontario Catholic District School Board (CSDCEO) in L’Orignal. For the occasion, several dignitaries, community partners and educators were present to welcome this new form of recognition.

With the help of their counterparts in France, CSDCEO and Groupe Convex were able to learn and model best practices to develop a skills development and recognition program. This program targets both the development and attestation of competencies for workers in social enterprises as well as CSDCEO students, for whom the labor market is the chosen path at the end of their secondary studies.

This program is designed to facilitate students’ integration into the labor market and to improve the career path and mobility of workers.
