Canadian Immigrant Virtual Fair 2020: A dynamic career, education & settlement fair and speakers’ series under one virtual umbrella!
Looking for information and inspiration in the areas of work, education, immigration and settlement during this pandemic? Canadian Immigrant is here for you!
As we put our large-scale signature fairs across Canada on hold until Spring 2021, we bring you two free informative and interactive Virtual Fairs on November 18 & 20 on the lines of our in-person fairs. The all-day event, being held from 10 am-4 pm, will provide an opportunity to hear from key leaders and attend sessions on topics ranging from immigrant integration to entrepreneurship, small business, banking and soft skills.
Sponsored by BMO, the Virtual Fairs will offer a dynamic environment for immigrants who need help as they look for jobs, go back to school and settle into their new home. Virtual attendees will have an opportunity to connect with exhibitors at the Fair, including employers, recruiters, immigrant service providers, educational institutions and more.
In the opening panel discussion, key immigrant voices including business leader Gina Cody who made a historic $15 million gift to Concordia University; entrepreneur, leader and philanthropist Bruce Poon Tip of G Adventures; leading voices from settlement agencies, and immigration experts share their unique perspectives on opportunities for newcomers and immigrants to better integrate socially, economically and culturally as they settle into their new home.
Break-out sessions during the day include financial tips for newcomers by event sponsor BMO. This will be the first session after the panel discussion, sharing financial knowledge and expertise with newcomers so they can make sound decisions about managing their finances as they build new lives in Canada.
The Canadian Immigrant Virtual Fair for the Western Region (British Colombia, Alberta and Manitoba) is being held on Wednesday, November 18 from 10 am–4 pm (PDT).
The Canadian Immigrant Virtual Fair for the Eastern Region (Ontario and Nova Scotia) is being held on Friday, November 20 from 10 am–4 pm (EDT).
To make all this happen, Canadian Immigrant is in building a customized online platform that will enable these virtual connections and conversations.
