Province hosts job fair tour

NANAIMO: B.C. government connects employers, employees at job fair.

In hopes of connecting British Columbians looking for work with employers looking for qualified employees, the provincial government is organizing a job fair tour.

The Nanaimo job fair, which takes place Sept. 28 at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, is one of 24 held in communities across the province this fall as part of the Canada Starts Here: The B.C. Jobs Plan, a campaign to promote economic development and job growth.

Employers, post-secondary institutions, industry associations, training authorities and health authorities will be in attendance, as well as the B.C. Jobs Start Here Mobile Exhibit, a hands-on, interactive experience that connects residents with career information, employment services, job banks and local job events.

The Nanaimo event takes place from noon to 7 p.m.
