Government of Canada supports youth career fair in Drumheller

DRUMHELLER, ALBERTA, September 7, 2010 - Drumheller youth will have the opportunity to meet local employers and explore career opportunities thanks to support from the Government of Canada. Mr. Kevin Sorenson, Member of Parliament for Crowfoot, made the announcement today on behalf of the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development.

"In today's environment, it is more important than ever that young Canadians have the skills and information they need to participate and succeed in the job market," said Mr. Sorenson. "Our government is proud to support activities like this one that benefit both employers and youth."

MH Enterprises will receive over $13,000 through the Government of Canada's Youth Awareness program to organize a one-day career fair for youth and community members in the Drumheller area. The event will introduce youth to a variety of local employers, as well as employment opportunities and career possibilities available in the region.

"MH Enterprises, along with several community partners, is extremely excited to be afforded this funding opportunity," said Ms. Marina Paarup, Director of MH Enterprises. "The upcoming career fair will provide Drumheller's community members with a valuable resource that has far-reaching benefits in developing employment connections."

The federal government is working with the provinces and territories, community organizations and other stakeholders to provide Canadians with the training, skills and opportunities they need to participate in the workforce and contribute to their communities.

Youth Awareness is part of the Government of Canada's strategy to create the best educated, most skilled and most flexible workforce in the world. The Government underscored its commitment to this strategy in Canada's Economic Action Plan. A key component of the Plan is to create more and better opportunities for Canadian workers through skills development. To learn more about Canada's Economic Action Plan, visit www.actionplan.gc.ca.
