We wish to remind you that CCA is also accepting applications for libraries operating in English.  Colleagues in the library community will have to select “Canadian Library Association” as the delivery organisation when preparing their application.

A few tips to help with your new YCW account Based on recent interactions we have added with applicants, we wish to offer the following tips to help you with the creation of your YCW employer profile:

  1. When creating your password, do ensure that it includes the following: one upper case character, one lower case character, one number and one special character (such as “!” or “?”).
  2. When inserting your federal business number, do ensure that you use the “-“.
  3. When confirming your email address, do ensure to visit your junk mail folder to verify if the confirmation email sent by YCW has not arrived in it by mistake.
