Short Description
Administrative Procedures for the Canadian Office  helps students develop the skills they need to perform a wide variety of office procedures in a variety of settings. Students are encouraged to upgrade their level of thinking from basic knowledge to comprehension and finally application. 
Working in a global economy makes it essential for administrative professionals to develop knowledge of broad business practice, which is why the 10e places a greater emphasis on diversity understanding, and the concepts surrounding organizational structure, climate, and culture. There is also an increased focus on emerging technologies, an exploration of varied employability requirements and new content on human resource functions, equity standards, and management and leadership concepts.
