The Official National Event of Canada Career Month 2017

Canada Career Month 2017 would not be possible without the generous support of our Platinum Sponsor, Chatter High.

Canada's Most Informed School Competition is one of ChatterHigh's two flagship events. During the month of November, thousands of high school students will do daily quizzes to earn points for their school--all while learning about the career options available to them. These points rank their school on a Leaderboard. At the end of the competition period, the schools at the top of the Leaderboards win cash prizes.

From choosing jobs that play to their strengths in industries they are passionate about, to learning more about the educational pathways to get there, Canada's Most Informed Student competition is one of the most innovative initiatives in the world of career building, education, and human resources development. 

Chatter High’s mission is to have every student talking about their future. The organization supports a national dialogue on career opportunities and pathways by hosting discussions and running national competitions that highlight education and training opportunities and career options to youth from coast-to-coast-to-coast! These tools empower students and teachers and foster lasting connections with post-secondary institutions and growing industries.
