RDC’s Counselling & Career Centre hosts a variety of events on many topics throughout the year to help ensure our students, instructors and staff are successful in their studies and in their work.

Backpacks to Briefcases provides all RDC students the opportunity to connect with each other and with experts in a variety of sectors who join us to share their expertise and advice in a full-day professional development conference.

Students, alumni and community members can join us on November 28, 2019, at the Education and Career Fair, in partnership with Black Press Media, to explore a wide variety of exciting employment opportunities available with a variety of organizations. Online employer registration is coming soon.

We encourage everyone to Make Some Time for their mental health by organizing events that provide tips on how to effectively manage stress and help take any stigma away from having healthy and open conversations about mental health.
