What is ECF?
The Education & Career Fairs (ECF) is an annual career development fair series in Canada. Our mission is to create community connections by inspiring students and employment seekers in skill development and education pathways.
Fairs are attended by secondary students planning for higher education; young adults looking to transfer their work experience & skills to a different industry; and new immigrants seeking employment and further training to settle in Canada. More than just a trade show, ECF creates opportunities for individuals or organizations to chat, ask questions and learn together.
The desire to connect outside of our homes, offices and schools
post-pandemic is thriving!
To meet. To greet. To explore incredible opportunities.
Attendees will benefit from the many opportunities to interact face-to-face with school recruiters, industry experts and human resource managers. They will also be able to practice their employability skills and receive personalized advice from recruiters about everything from resume writing to interviewing techniques.
We encourage all attendees to take full advantage of all the activities at the Education & Career Fairs, including The Learning Lounge, to ask questions and gain new knowledge.
As part of ECF’s evolution to continuously meet the needs of both our exhibitors and students, we are highlighting career pathways in trades and skills training in all our upcoming fairs taking place in British Columbia in December 2022 and in Ontario in March 2023. Students will be able to discover more about themselves, explore opportunities that align with their interests, and learn how to create a plan leading them to their successful transition into the world of post-secondary education and careers.
