The Parent Portal helps parents engage in the career planning process with their children by allowing parents to monitor and comment on their child’s career development activities. Parents can track their child’s portfolio completion status; view their child’s portfolio, including the interests, achievements, goals, and career and education plans s/he has recorded there; provide feedback on portfolio content; receive messages from their child’s teacher or Counsellor.
Parents access the Parent Portal using an activation code, available via email invitation from their child. Once they have a code, they can go to www.careercruising.com/parent to register and log into their account.

|There are so many scholarships available for so many qualifying reasons that I'm sure no one person can know them all. Luckily for us, there are a couple of legitimate websites that serve as 'clearing houses' for scholarships. What that means is that it's worth your time to complete/ create your own profile on these sites, and keep it updated as you go through different stages of your schooling. With that information [who you are, which stage you're at, what you want to study] the website sends you emails about scholarships you might possibly be eligible for. Yes there's some work answering questions and maybe writing essays, but for free money!? it's worth it!|
|Scholarships Canada (Student Success Stories)|
The Student Awards website is linked to the Canadian Government's CanLearn system. Registering on this site will create your own personal search engine for scholarships! Upcoming scholarship opportunities that 'fit' you and what you want to study will be emailed to you, even with reminders of upcoming deadlines.
