Resolution number: 
7
May 2004
Whereas: 
  1. National Settlement Sector occupational competencies do not exist.
  2. No certification/accreditation body presently regulates settlement as a profession.
  3. Professionals in this sector provide services at par with other social service providers.
  4. There is an increasing burden on Settlement Practitioners to provide varied and in-depth services meeting provincial/federal reporting, evaluation and accountability requirements.  
  5. CIC has promoted the notion of comparable services across provinces and regions.
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR, in collaboration with other sector organizations, seek funding from appropriate sources and contingent upon securing appropriate resources, undertake a feasibility study on Professional Certification within the settlement sector.
