Canadian Immigrant magazine is proudly presenting its fifth annual Vancouver Career, Education and Settlement Immigrant Fair on Thursday, November 9, 2017, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Vancouver Convention Centre West (1055 Canada Place, Vancouver) near the Waterfront Skytrain Station. Free admission!
The fair offers a unique and exciting environment for immigrants who are looking for information and inspiration as they look for jobs, go back to school and settle into their new home.
This event builds on the success of our last three fairs at the same dynamic venue, with the 2015 edition achieving record attendance at 1000+ attendees.
The 5th annual event is expected to be bigger than ever, with:
- diverse exhibitors, including employers, education institutes and social service agencies
- interactive activities like a resumé clinic and networking opportunities
- inspirational speakers’ lineup
- English pronunciation class with Catherine Steele
- session on the CPA program and how to transfer your accounting/financial background to Canada
“With a three-pronged approach of settlement, careers and education, the fair brings to life our mission to inform, educate and motivate new Canadians,” said Gautam Sharma, group publisher of Canadian Immigrant. This is a must-attend event for new immigrants in Canada. Our goal is to inform and motivate new Canadians as they begin and continue their settlement journey. We aim to provide essential information and tips on job hunting, accreditation, upgrading of education, looking for a home and more.
