The Canadian CED Network (CCEDNet) is pleased to announce the recent extension of its CED Work Experience Program, CreateAction. This program is funded by Service Canada. Its purpose is to give out-of-school post-graduate youth, who have a career focus in CED, a relevant six-month work experience placement. We are recruiting up to 20 community-based CED organizations to host work experience participants from September 8, 2008 – February 20, 2009 inclusively.
