Cornwall Ontario – Job seekers will have a chance to meet dozens of local employers in-person at the Cornwall and Area Job Fair in March.
The Job Fair will be held at the Cornwall Civic Complex on on Wednesday March 29th and is being organized by the Social Development Council of Cornwall and Area’s Employability Network. The event is free and open to anyone seeking employment in Cornwall, Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, and Akwesasne.
“The Employability Network is well aware of the current labour shortage communities across Ontario are facing and is resonating in our region,” says Carilyne Hébert, Executive Director of the SDC. “We look forward to working with our local employers once again to support them in their recruitment needs.”
The Job Fair will feature two sessions to allow people with different schedules attend the event:
- Wednesday March 29 at the Cornwall Civic Complex
- First Session: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
- Second Session: 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm
The Eastern Ontario Training Board along with the Newcomer Employment Welcome Services Centre is proud to partner with the SDC by providing an added feature at this year’s job fair: Community Connections – A yearly event that brings together new residents, local agencies and employers.
“This collaboration will allow our newcomer community to get a better understanding of the employment opportunities that our area has to offer and connect them directly with service providers – which will help them get that support they need to succeed with their transition,” says Martha Woods, Executive Director of the Eastern Ontario Training Board. “Our goal is to help bridge gaps for our ever-growing community, make our newcomers feel welcome and encourage them to establish themselves in our area.”
This is the ninth consecutive year that a Job Fair has been held in Cornwall.
Job seekers will be able to speak directly to recruiters at the Job Fair, and personally hand over their résumés. A list of available jobs in Cornwall can be found on the ChooseCornwall.ca Job Board.
There will be over 40 exhibitors at the Job Fair. Employers and service providers must register at https://jobfair-2023.eventbrite.ca by March 1st.
