I hope you all had a wonderful summer and a great start to the new school year.

But with these challenges come opportunities to grow, learn, and better ourselves. You’ve got this!
Not only is JPD back with more articles, but we’re also expanding our content this year. We’re adding video interviews conducted by our writers with professionals across Canada. You’ll get insights on how they got to where they are, what their days are like, and how technologies and the pandemic have changed their work. There’ll also be audio interviews in the form of podcasts that will go more in-depth. Stay tuned!

Want to make some positive changes this school year? Check out some ways to set up good habits.
