“The job fair was well attended with a pleasing diversity in candidates with a wide range in skills, abilities, and experience. Volunteers were easily accessible and ensured employers had a pleasant experience.”

2022 Event Information
Due to the pandemic, the event will return as a virtual event that is free to employers! The experience of meeting job seekers at an in-person job fair will be recreated through the opportunity to share about your company, and the roles you are recruiting on Facebook Live! Job seekers can join in and ask questions in real time, and then apply with your company!
*Please note, because we only have 10 spots available, we will be selecting employers who will be actively hiring at the time of the job fair and are committed to hiring from the labour pool that attends this event.
If you do not receive confirmation of filling out the application form please contact Kayla Brien: firstname.lastname@example.org
Why should I exhibit?
