More about the FairThousands of immigrants and refugees arrive in Metro Vancouver yearly with ambitions for their family’s future. However, many need information and inspiration on the reality of Canadian living — from continuing education to obtaining employment and getting settled. Canadian Immigrant magazine has been a guiding star for such newcomers through its national print and online publications for more than 10 years. The Career, Education & Settlement Fair — which has been a hit in Toronto for the last five years, Calgary for two, and Halifax for the first time this September — expands its support of Canadian newcomers with a comprehensive tradeshow and interactive sessions.
“The last two years of our Vancouver fair have been a great success, connecting newcomers with service providers and employers face-to-face. Indeed, one of the most important aspects of the Fair is the opportunity it gives newcomers to make real connections with others.
We encourage all immigrants and refugees in Metro Vancouver to come to this free event to network, learn new strategies for success, and leave inspired.” — Sanjay Agnihotri, Co-Publisher of Canadian Immigrant.
