March 10th, 2015

YP-IT Data is a start-up with a big future in the digital age and has service for professors who apply for research grants.

YP-IT Data is an Ottawa-based digital services firm that helps businesses, governments and other organizations improve the efficiency of their operations. Whether it is the digitization of old paper records, transcription of data or other technology based efforts, we are working to help organizations modernize.

Our unique service is fully supported by Canadian university students who are provided with an opportunity to gain employment income, be exposed to our Life Lessons initiatives that cover business etiquette, financial literacy and other important skills needed to succeed in the 21st Century workplace.

As a company, we also contribute towards an Education Savings Fund to support our employee's academic pursuits. I welcome you to visit our website to learn more about the MyCCVTM service and our firm.

The Canadian Common CV (CCV) is becoming a required part of applications to funding organizations (such as SSHRC, NSERC and CIHR among 20 other organizations) by faculty and researchers. Faculty we have spoken with have expressed a frustration with effort to create their CCV. More specifically, they have identified that the effort to prepare their CCV can take upwards of 20 hours for someone with a longstanding career and a history of actively publishing and presenting their works in journals and other public forums. Some faculty members have told us they did not submit an application this year because of the extra burden, but this decision does not benefit the University nor its students.

To help simplify the process and remove this burden from faculty, we have been working with Carleton University to support faculty members in their efforts to create and update their CCV. We are now rolling the system out across Canada and thus our interest in introducing ourselves and the MyCCVTM service to you.
