Council of School Counsellors

Link to Council of School Counsellors website


The Council of School Counsellors (CSC) seeks to maintain and improve guidance programs and services throughout Alberta's schools.


To carry out its mandate, the CSC encourages professional development of practicing counsellors, and promotes the liaison of counsellors with other professionals in the helping professions. Much of the work of the Council is done at the regional level and consists of conferences, meetings and liaison with outside agencies.

The Council holds a conference that serves to bring together widely known speakers and practitioners and that affords the opportunity for vital networking. In addition, to promote the profession and to honor those who excel, the Council grants the Murray Jampolsky award annually to an outstanding practicing school counsellor in the province.


The CSC publishes The Alberta Counselletter newsletter and the Canadian School Counselling Review journal (previously titled, The Alberta Counsellor).
