The Education & Career Fairs (ECF) is now in its 21st year as the largest career development fair in British Columbia, focused on supporting secondary students, young adults and new immigrants.
Visitors have a unique opportunity to network with representatives from post-secondary institutions, employers & industry associations. These face-to-face interactions are valuable towards making the connections with the learning providers that can train them, and the companies that will hire them.
In addition to 100+ exhibitors, make sure you schedule enough time to visit these ECF Special Areas:
Learning Lounge: Take a break and take a seat while you listen to experts talk about trending study and work topics.
Interactive Galleries: Arrive with a sense of curiosity and explore some of B.C.’s hottest industries that have a huge demand for workers in the future!
Job Skills Workshops: Practice your job ready skills with the guidance of professionals and support of other people just like you!
ECF welcomes over 10,000 attendees every year because of the team’s strong relationships with school districts, WorkBC and immigrant support centres.
Come visit us at Nanaimo, Surrey, Vancouver, Abbotsford, and Kelowna between November – December 2017!
“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
