Canada Career Week Fair is a one-stop shop for exploring career opportunities


Edmonton... Albertans looking for a first job, a career change or who want to explore education and training options will have access to a wealth of information at the Canada Career Week Fair. The fair takes place at the Northlands Sportex on November 18 and 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is expected to draw more than 7,000 job seekers and high school students.

Organized by Human Resources and Employment, Oteenow Employment and Training Society and Service Canada, the fair is part of a national initiative to address labour force development issues. This year’s theme is “Seeking Change - Find Direction.”

“The provincial government is committed to ensuring Albertans have the skills, supports and information they need to succeed in the labour market,” said Minister of Human Resources and Employment, Mike Cardinal. “We are also working with industry and employers to build Alberta’s workforce and find innovative solutions to labour force issues.”

This year’s fair will feature 145 exhibitors, including employers, industry organizations, post-secondary institutions and training providers. In addition to offering participants an opportunity to explore career choices, many employer exhibitors, such as the Edmonton Police Service, will be actively recruiting.

Presentations titled “Ask Me What It’s Like to . . .” focus on specific careers and give participants an opportunity to hear from experts in various occupations. Feature displays include a mini carpentry competition among several high schools, rescue demonstrations by Edmonton Fire Rescue, NAIT’s Mobile Trades Lab, and the Edmonton City Police will be displaying their Recruiting Humvee and Bomb Truck.

Admission to the Canada Career Week Fair is free.
