Looking for work? Want to move up in your career? Need information on settling in Metro Vancouver? On November 13, 2018, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the free Canadian Immigrant Fair is coming to Vancouver Convention Centre East (999 Canada Place).
This tradeshow and speakers’ series for skilled immigrants, newcomers, students and temporary residents 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.
“Metro Vancouver is obviously a destination of choice, but it can also be a challenging place, given the issues of affordability and housing costs,” says Margaret Jetelina, editor, Canadian Immigrant magazine, which is the host of the fair, in association with sponsor Public Mobile. “Immigrants are coming to Canada, and it’s our responsibility to welcome them, and help them settle in and find success. Through the Canadian Immigrant Fair, we offer information on the three pillars of success for immigrating to Canada: careers, education and settlement.”
How the Canadian Immigrant Fair can help
The free fair will feature a tradeshow of diverse exhibitors, including career advisors, education institutes and social service agencies, plus hiring companies.
Get job-ready with helpful resources such as free one-on-one advice at our Resumé Clinic, run in partnership with MOSAIC immigrant settlement agency. And if you want a more professional headshot for your LinkedIn social media presence, the fair’s associate sponsor Public Mobile will be offering a free professional photo booth to take your photo onsite.
The event’s popular speakers’ series includes an English pronunciation class by Catherine Steele, motivational workshops on succeeding in Canada by two RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrants, Iman Aghay and Miroslav Reljic, plus a session on making the most of a job fair with Pacific Community Resources Society’s Alexander Bell.
Temporary residents and PRs looking to become citizens can also seek advice on the English testing requirements at the CELPIP English test workshop.
