The fair aims to connect those looking for jobs with potential employers from a range of industries. Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm says this is the perfect opportunity to come and meet local employers.

“Job Fairs help job seekers and potential employers by giving them the chance to meet and create networking opportunities. They give job seekers the chance to learn more about their career options.”

Employers from post-secondary institutions, industry, trades and health authorities will all be there to meet with job seekers. There will also be information on different skills training and career development programs within the province.
