Canada Career Week Fair 2010 in Edmonton

Canada Career Week Fair 2010 will be held Friday November 19th (9am-5pm) and Saturday November 20th (10am-4pm) at the EDMONTON EXPO CENTRE (Northlands Agricom Edmonton).


Local youth will have the opportunity to meet employers and explore career options thanks to support from the Government of Canada. The Honourable Rona Ambrose, Minister of Public Works and Government Services and Member of Parliament for Edmonton–Spruce Grove, 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 Minister Ambrose. "Our government is proud to support activities like this one that benefit both employers and youth."

Currie Communications Ltd. will receive $75,000 through the Government of Canada's Youth Awareness program to organize and promote Edmonton's Canada Career Week Fair, which is taking place on November 19 and 20, 2010. The event will introduce youth to a variety of local employers, community agencies and post-secondary institutions, as well as employment opportunities and career possibilities available in the region. This year's fair will feature almost 200 exhibits and draw approximately 10 000 visitors.

"We are proud to work with the Government of Canada on such a worthwhile event that will help so many in preparing for a career," said Ms. Clare Denman, Senior Manager for Currie Communications Ltd. "The 2010 Canada Career Week Fair will bring together numerous companies under one roof to assist the public in gathering the information they need to take those next steps toward their career and educational goals."

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.
