The Counselling Foundation of Canada, a family foundation funded by Frank G. Lawson and his estate, was established in 1959 to create and enrich counselling programs and improve the technical skills of career counsellors. The object of the Foundation is to engage in charitable and educational activities for the benefit of people; thus enabling them to improve their lifestyles and make a more effective contribution to their communities.
The goals of The Foundation are:
To promote the effective delivery of career counselling through reputable and credible existing institutions (education, religious and community) to individuals involved in the process of career development;
To encourage and support information and evaluation centres for career counselling;
To work towards the professionalization of counselling and promote public education which clarifies the role and qualifications of counsellors; and
To encourage and support programs which contribute to healthy child development especially for those groups of parents and children known to be at greatest risk.
The Counselling Foundation of Canada is proud to support CERIC and its programs:
