Welcome to Education & Career Fairs!
ECF empowers people at all stages of life to make their dreams into reality through meaningful interactions.
For the past 20 years, the Education & Career Fairs (ECF) has been inspiring residents of B.C. communities with real study and work opportunities. ECF strives to support the economic future of B.C. by connecting high school students, new immigrants, and career changers with gainful work and study prospects. We bring together representatives from universities, colleges, career training institutions, industry associations and employers with their wealth of knowledge and resources in order to make that happen.
ECF is B. C’s #1 experiential career-focused fair in Canada with a robust program including Interactive Galleries, a Job Skills Workshop and the Learning Lounge with engaging presentations throughout the day.
ECF has traveled throughout the Lower Mainland, Okanagan, Vancouver Island and into Alberta. Collaborating with school districts, employment centres, and local WorkBC centre’s, ECF welcomes over 10,000 attendees across all fairs. This year, ECF will be in Nanaimo, Surrey, Vancouver, Abbotsford, and Kelowna.
“I like the variety of vendors [at the Education & Career Fair]. It was good to talk to schools about programs, then to employers that hire graduates of certain degrees” —Attendee, Abbotsford

“The Learning Lounge talks available were very valuable, it gives my students a unique look into different types of careers” —High School Counselor, Nanaimo
