WHAT ARE THE PARTICIPATION CRITERIA FOR THE VIRTUAL JOBS FAIR?
This Virtual fair is open a priori and exclusively to people eligible to work in Canada.
Only Canadian residents, persons with their Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) or persons who have received a Unique Client Identification (UCI) can access the Virtual Career Fair.
You must therefore meet the following conditions:
Having the minimum working age according to the labor legislation in your province (usually 16 years or older)
You are either a Canadian Citizen, a Permanent Resident (settled in Canada or outside Canada), a foreign citizen accepted for immigration to Canada and holding a confirmation of permanent residence (COPR), or a person admitted as a Refugee with Status accepted in Canada
You are also a qualified worker in your field, proving the professional experience necessary for the exercise in your profession
Regulations are different from one province to another in Canada and from one professional order to another. The employer will certainly be able to validate your diplomas before making a job offer.
Could I participate in the Virtual Career Fair even if there is no offer that matches my profile?
The job offers displayed during the Virtual Jobs Fair represent the needs of the employers present at the fair at the time of the event. If there is no job offer that matches your profile, we still encourage you to participate in the Virtual Jobs Fair in order to expand your professional network and build contacts with Canadian employers. All applicants who register and meet the eligibility criteria will receive an invitation and confirmation of their registration for the Virtual Jobs Fair.
How can I get more information?
If your registration request is accepted, you will receive the invitation and all the practical information by email. Invitations will be sent out in fall 2020. Virtual fair registration confirmations will be sent out between February 1 and 8, 2021.
