National Job Fair & Training Expo Returns to TorontoVariety of Companies Offering Employment and Career Opportunities
Toronto – The National Job Fair & Training Expo, Ontario’s largest and most comprehensive recruitment event, offers two days of opportunities for all those seeking employment or who wish to develop their careers through a variety of options. The Fair, now entering its 13th year of operations, returns to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (North Building, Exhibit, Hall C) from April 2-3, 2014.
Being held in Toronto, most exhibitors of The National Job Fair & Training Expo come from Ontario, but this 24th edition includes several companies from across Canada with opportunities in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec as well as Newfoundland and Labrador. It is a public event, which invites visitors to attend in order to develop their careers, whether they are looking for a job, self-employment, continuing education, career training, entrepreneurship services or career services. It is a business-to-consumer event with some 145 booths presented by more than 110 companies ready and eager to meet with candidates.
New this year is WelcomePack Canada, an organization that provides services to new Canadians. Every visitor to The National Job Fair & Training Expo who can provide a Permanent Residence (PR) card that was issued on or after September 2011 will receive a welcome pack gift box worth about $1,000. New immigrants can also visit the Siskinds Immigration Group booth for information on the immigration process.
Toastmasters District 60, a regular to the Fair, made a step forward to become an Associate Sponsor to manage a new public service at the fair – The Communication Skills Consulting Centre. Essentially, this new service provides 12 workshops and private sessions to the visitors interested in developing their communication skills, whether it is for public speaking, presentations, event hosting, group facilitation or confidence building. Communication skills can make a huge difference in a job interview and the work environment often requires these qualifications.
Exhibitors come from a range of industries including automotive, banking, real estate, finance, chemical, manufacturing, construction, education, marketing, law enforcement, distribution, retail, insurance, administration, transportation, accounting, management, engineering, mining, telecommunications, skilled trades, non-profit, marketing and sale, to name a few.
Some of the companies and organizations representing various industries include: CIBC in banking and financial; L.V. Lomas Ltd and Maxxam in the chemical industry; Pfaff Automotive Partners Inc, Edmonton Ford Hires, Nortrux Inc. and Fountain Tire in the automotive/transportation; as well as Vector Marketing Canada, Kognitive Marketing, Mosaic Sales Solutions, Future Buildings, TigerDirect.ca, Training Business Pros and the Certified Marketing Management Professionals of Canada in the marketing, digital marketing and sales industries.

To make it easier for visitors to find what they need, The National Job Fair & Training Expo is composed of five pavilions – Employment Pavilion, including specific recruitment zones by province or by sector, Training & Education Pavilion, Entrepreneurship Pavilion, Career Training Pavilion and the International Pavilion (work & study abroad). The service areas of the fair include the Resumé Professional Assessment Centre, presented by The Career Foundation, the Communication Skills Consulting Centre, presented by Toastmasters District 60, the Career Posting Zone, presented by Employment New and the Documentation Centre.
The 14 advice-rich presentations on various career topics at the Public Presentation Area and the 12 entrepreneurship seminars hosted by super speakers at the Entrepreneurship Seminar Room add value to the visit for attendees.
