SCC's Canadian Young Professionals Program - Advisory Panel
A Message from the Co-Chairs
Welcome to the Advisory Panel for the Canadian Young Professionals Program!
The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) is excited to develop and implement a new Young Professionals (YP) Program that engages young professionals today, while positioning them to impact Canada's standardization network tomorrow.
SCC's modernized vision for the future dedicates time and resources to ensure effective Canadian representation at international forums. Young professionals are directly involved with these initiatives and this type of work, so it's important SCC provides the appropriate guidance, service and engagement to fully prepare and inspire them. Benefits for those involved in a YP Program will include:
- National / International standardization awareness
- Networking opportunities
- Conformity assessment
- Availability of guidance or capacity building resources
As Co-Chairs of this panel, we recognize that YPs will continue to make significant contributions within IEC, ISO and national standards-related work.
We ask that you please provide this Advisory Panel with ideas, thoughts, opinions and needs regarding an SCC Canadian Young Professionals Program. This will provide valuable insight into how this program is developed and implemented as a valuable resource for the experts of tomorrow.
Encourage & Solicit Panel Discussion
We also encourage you to solicit other young professionals within your field: colleagues, other SCC Members and like-minded professionals who can help grow this organic workspace and provide SCC with useful feedback when developing this Canadian YP Program. We hope to use this panel as a stepping stone for implementing a fully functional, up to date YP Program that will help drive the standardization efforts of Canada for years to come.
Please provide us with feedback as we hope to compile all information and incorporate it into new YP Program. Note that all participation on this panel is virtual.
