|Canadian Immigrant Fair helps newcomers with careers, education and settlement|
Internationally trained professionals, other newcomers, international students and temporary workers welcome!
–More than 300,000 immigrants and refugees come to Canada each year, many with top credentials in their professional fields. Many more thousands come on temporary work permits in hopes of staying permanently one day. Some may be fleeing war, while others are seeking new opportunities and a better life. But they all have one thing in common: they need information and guidance after they arrive to help them in their immigration journey. That’s where the cross-country Canadian Immigrant Fair, in association with Public Mobile, comes in.
On June 10, 2019, the free fair comes to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, O.N. This tradeshow + speakers’ series for newcomers is all about providing the information and inspiration people need as they look for jobs, go back to school and settle into their new home.
The free fair will feature a tradeshow of diverse exhibitors, including career advisors, education institutes and social service agencies, plus hiring companies, a resumé clinic and a LinkedIn professional photo booth by associate sponsor Public Mobile.
“Settling into a new country is both exciting and challenging, particularly when also trying to secure employment. To that end, we are thrilled to provide resources to assist with the challenges of today’s job market through free professional photos. We look forward to participating in this cross-country fair and connecting with new members of our community,” says David MacLean, Director of Public Mobile.
The event’s popular speakers’ series includes career and job search workshops, communications skills class and a networking session.
“Through the Canadian Immigrant Fair, we offer information on the three pillars of success for immigrating to Canada: careers, education and settlement,” says Sanjay Agnihotri, group publisher of Canadian Immigrant, a national magazine, website and events producer that has been a guiding star for newcomers since 2004. “More newcomersare coming to Canada every year, either as skilled immigrants, refugees or temporary workers looking to stay permanently, and it’s our responsibility to help them settle into this great country and succeed.”
After the Toronto event, the Canadian Immigrant Fair will be held in 5 other cities throughout 2019.
