CFIR’s Career & Vocational Assessment Service provides comprehensive psychological evaluations to support you or your loved one to find a new career that is best suited to your needs, interests, strengths and goals. We provide a thorough assessment that uses a variety of scientific, evidence-based questionnaires to assess various factors (e.g., occupational interests) that are important in clarifying your career possibilities.
We offer a comprehensive assessment that includes various psychometric questionnaires. The measures assess important career and vocational factors, including your personality traits, aptitudes, occupational values and needs, vocational interests, and work style, and help you find career paths that fit most closely with who you are, your skills and previously acquired knowledge.

IF YOU SAID YES TO ANY OF THE ABOVE you might consider meeting with one of the highly trained career counsellors in CFIR’s Career & Vocational Assessment Service. Our career counsellors can provide you with a comprehensive assessment and then support you to get the help you need.
You can refer yourself or a loved one to our service.
Health care professionals, including physicians, psychiatrists, social workers and psychologists may also refer their patients for an assessment.
Teachers and professors, guidance counselors, and other educational consultants can also refer.
Typically, we meet with you or your loved one for an initial session to understand your current career and vocational concerns. Following an initial meeting, we will then conduct an extensive interview to assess the various factors that influence career-decision making. You will then participate in two sessions that involve completing numerous scientific, evidence-based questionnaires. Following this process, the results from the clinical interview are brought together with questionnaire results and a labour market analysis to provide an overall picture, and feedback is provided to you about various possible career options you may consider. During the feedback session, any questions you may have about the results or recommendations will be addressed.
The entire assessment process, which includes an initial session, interviews and administration of scientific, evidence-based questionnaires, assessment feedback, and a report with recommendations (if needed) will take approximately three to four weeks to complete. Please consult with one of our career counsellors to determine the length of time required to complete your particular assessment.
Following receipt your assessment results, we will provide you with extensive recommendations about your career options and next steps. We provide you with a comprehensive final report that summarizes significant results of questionnaires, and recommendations to consider for the future.
