Hiring Fairs & other programs


16th Annual Youth Hiring Fair

This year’s Annual Youth Hiring Fair was a great success! On April 8, 2014 (our first really warm day of spring) 5,000 eager job seekers passed through the doors at Stampede Park’s BMO Centre. There were over 90 employers onsite will as many jobs as there were youth in attendance. Young people were lined up hours in advance of the doors opening.

“Helping young people get off on the right foot is so important,” says Arlas Gilles, a Youth Hiring Fair organizer with The City of Calgary, “We were thrilled with how this year’s event turned out.”
