The National Job Fair
The National Job Fair & Training Expo

Group visits

The program of group visits of The National Job Fair was created to greet the adult clientele of various organizations working with job seekers and individuals in career development such as Carrefours Jeunesse Emploi, employment centres and clubs and adult education schools of Greater Montreal and other parts of Quebec. They are all invited to register in group visits with their clientele.

The National Job Fair is presented in conjunction with two other complementary events: The Study & Stay Abroad Fair and The National Education Fair, open to adults and youth. By booking a group visit, then you offer your customers the opportunity to explore three interrelated universes.
