The National Job Fair is Canada's largest job and training fair. This is the most important gathering of the year in the recruitment world in Canada.

The 14th edition of The National Job Fair will take place on October 17 and 18, 2019 at Place Bonaventure in Montreal. Nearly 310 exhibitors are participating in 2019, which will make it the largest job fair in Canada this year. The National Fair is not only the only job fair in Canada to host more than 300 exhibitors, but reaching this summit for the second consecutive year gives it an even more exclusive status and positions it resolutely in a class of its own.

Living & Working in the Regions and Regionalization of Immigration: Jobs by the thousands seeking takers in the regions

In addition to presenting numerous companies looking for candidates to fill positions in the Greater Montreal, The National Job Fair has been recognized for years for its efforts to promote the regions and attract the workforce in the regions. Regional exhibitors will shine by highlighting the benefits of living and working in their region and by promoting their regional jobs to job seekers in Greater Montreal. In 2019, some 140 employers and support organizations from all the administrative regions of Quebec will participate in the Great Annual Seduction of the Regions in Montreal, a component of the Fair embodied in our 3 exclusive regional programs: Our Living & Working in the Region Regional Delegation Program©, presented in partnership with several Quebec regions; our Regionalization of Immigration Program©, presented in partnership with the Regroupement des organismes de régionalisation de l'immigration du Québec (RORIQ), managed by the Table de concertation des personnes réfugiées et immigrantes du Québec (TCRI); and our Welcoming and Information Service Program, presented in partnership with Emplois en régions. A special welcome is reserved for New Canadians and Newcomers. Discover our 3 featured regions: Côte-Nord, Drummondville and Eastern Townships. Exhibitors from across Quebec will show you the many job opportunities and the many attractions of life in the regions.

Global vision at Canada’s largest recruitment event

The National Job Fair (employment and training recruitment for adults) is one of the three components of our annual global recruitment event. The other two components are The National Education Fair and The Study & Stay Abroad Fair (education and training recruitment for Youth and Adults). Our event consists of a trio of stand-alone fairs with complementary themes that are presented simultaneously in strategic cohabitation in two adjacent exhibition halls. Together, the three fairs are Canada's largest and most comprehensive career and recruitment event for 14 years (combined participation of 454 exhibitors and partners and more than 30,000 visitors in 2018). The event allows visitors to access jobs, shape and maximize the development of their career path, and make academic choices. It is an event to prepare for your future or to prepare to change it.

Registration period for exhibitors: Registrations accepted until October 16, 2019 (depending on availability of spaces).

TO ALL ORGANIZATIONS: In the fall of 2019, The National Job Fair will be the flagship event of your strategy to recruit and to publicize your organization within the labour force you are looking for.
