The CSC Collaborative is made up of 4 individual consultants with diverse expertise who have pooled their knowledge, skills, and experience to create and apply the Framework for Career-Span Competence. Combined we have over 50 years of experience working with clients to generate meaningful deliverables.
DAVID CANE PhD
David began full-time consulting work after many years as an accomplished educator and administrator, with broad experience in post-secondary education (both public and private). To fully engage his expertise in outcome-based learning, in 1998 David founded Catalysis Consulting and remains as its owner and principal consultant.
David’s early focuses were the development of competency-based professional standards, and education program accreditation. Later work incorporated the design of assessment procedures for entry-to-practice in the professions, derived from workplace expectations.
Throughout David’s consulting work developing standards for entry-to-practice competence, he has faced from clients the obvious, but far-reaching, question: what happens to a professional’s entry-to-practice abilities over time, and how can the commonly-expressed expectation for “continuing competence” be properly understood and meaningfully managed? Fast-forward to the Framework for Career-Span Competence and the work of the CSCCollaborative…

ANIA KANIA-RICHMOND RMT, PhD
Ania is a seasoned qualitative and mixed methods researcher, consultant and former massage therapist. Since the late 2000’s, she has contributed to the development, implementation and assessment of high-impact health interventions and programming, in both the public and private health sectors. She made valuable contributions to the conceptualization of the Framework for Career-Span Competence and worked closely with CSC Collaborative colleagues to develop career span competencies and indicators for the massage therapy profession in Ontario. In addition, she is making important contributions in the shift to an evidence-informed approach within the massage therapy profession.
Ania’s goal is to work closely with clients to clearly articulate problems and co-design customized solutions that effectively address their needs. She balances an evidence-informed approach with one that responds to stakeholder experiences and perceptions.
