Phillip S. Jarvis

Phil Jarvis is NLWC’s Vice President for Global Partnerships. A graduate of the Royal Military College, Phil authored the CHOICES computerized career system (now Xap/Bridges Transitions), and initiated Canada’s national career tabloid, Canada Prospects.

He co-authored the Blueprint for Life/Work Designs, was founding national coordinator of the Canada Career Information Partnership, was founding president of Canada WorkinfoNet, and is co-creator and international partnership coordinator for The Real Game Series. He was a lead author of the ground-breaking new digital editions of The Real Game for grades 6-9 (2008) and The Be Real Game for grades 10-16+ (2010).

Phil has been at the leading edge of development of career resources and programs now used by millions of youth and adults annually across Canada, the United States, and around the world. He speaks to the personal, social and economic costs of adhering to an outdated vocational guidance mindset, and the need to equip citizens with the “meta competencies” demanded by the 21st century workplace. 

He is a passionate advocate for more engaging, imaginative approaches to helping people visualize and construct, with intentionality and purpose, the life they want to live. He is warning of a looming “perfect talent storm” as Canada faces at least two decades of too few skilled workers and to many unfilled job vacancies.

Among other honours, he is a proud recipient of the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee Contributors Award in the United States in 1988, and the Stu Conger Award (1999) and the Stu Conger Gold Medal (2004) for national leadership in Canada in career development and management.
