Established in 2002, The National Job Fair & Training Expo is a multisector recruitment event presented twice a year, in spring and fall, in a high quality trade show approach. Aimed at stimulating employment in a dynamic and proactive environment, the fair was quick to attract recruiters from Ontario, across Canada and abroad to become Ontario's largest, most established and comprehensive recruitment event open to the general public.
The 2014 Fall National Job Fair & Training Expo will be held on September 16 and 17 - opening hours from 10 am to 6 pm each day - at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (downtown Toronto), a central and prestigious facility that is accessible to everyone from the Greater Toronto Area and outlying regions. This 25th edition is expected to showcase 135 to 145 booths presented by 110 to 120 great companies. You will access thousands of employment and career opportunities and career services. More than 500 recruiters, career specialists and admission officers will offer jobs or will help you to find one through hiring companies, employment and career services, career training and education programs.
Exhibitors will come from downtown Toronto, the GTA, other regions in Ontario such as Sarnia/Lambton, Timmins and Sudbury, from other provinces such as Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. There will be work and study abroad opportunities in Europe, Asia, Middle East, and South and Central America!
A highly reputable event for more than a decade, the Fair brings to candidates more job, training, education, self-employment, career services and entrepreneurship opportunities than any other event in Ontario. Visitors will find a wide range of reputable, dynamic and quality organizations from a wide variety of sectors under one roof. The Fair is an inclusive event. It promotes the hiring and career development of all individuals.
The National Job Fair & Training Expo is the leading job/career fair in Ontario with unparalleled track record and with absolutely no comparison in the field in terms of participation (exhibitors and visitors). This flagship event is open to the general public interested in employment, training & education, entrepreneurship and career development. In 12.5 years (i.e. 24 fairs), we recorded 2,899 exhibitors' registration and 3,250 exhibit spaces booked (average of 121 exhibitors and 135 occupied exhibit spaces per fair).
Since 2002, The National Job Fair & Training Expo welcomed 233,900 visitors (average attendance of 9,745 candidates per event). This is an outstanding highlight in the recruitment event industry in North America, so it is no coincidence that our job/career fair is synonymous with leadership, credibility and effectiveness. This is simply the best recruitment event a company can attend in Ontario!
Exhibitors in the spotlight
Super activities featured
Government of NewFoundland and Labrador- Public Service Commission
"We attended the fair in the fall of 2009. We had antiocipated a fair like others that we have attended and saw this as an opportunity to walk around and meet other exhibitors during slow times. To our surprise, we quickly realized this wasn't just another job fair. We were so busy that my colleague and I did not speak to each other until 3:30 p.m. In addition, we have had a position that has been opened for almost 2 years as we found no qualified applicants in our search. During the first day in attendance, we found TWO qualified applicants! We can safely term our first appearance at The National Job Fair & Training Expo a great success."

We are looking forward to our continued relationship and more success in the fall!!!"

I also wanted to commend you on your high level of Customer Service you have give RONA over the course of the last few months. Now understanding the magnitude of the job fair, your call back time and service is outstanding, and I look forward to having two booths next year!"
HONEY BEE MANUFACTURING (SASKATCHEWAN)
"After many years of involvement in major Trade Shows both in North America and Europe I would like to pass on a note of appreciation for the high level of organization exhibited by Daniel Levesque in the orchestration of The National Job Fair & Training Expo event in Toronto. For those of us who are exhibitors we always live under the constant pressure of our day to day business and often feel somewhat overwhelmed as we prepare for a Trade Show. It was comforting to have every step so well documented with timely reminders arriving as the event drew closer. The stress involved in preparation was greatly alleviated by the guidance provided. Thanks Daniel for the friendly, helpful and professional assistance. "

"You are one of the best Show Managers I have dealt with! This will be my first job fair at The National Job Fair and Training Expo and among all of the conferences etc. I have attended I absolutely love the informative emails. They provide us first-timers (and repeat attendees) to the National Job Fair and Training Expo with a detailed set of prepping guidelines. I'm very excited to be attending."
