Working In is proud to present an Canada jobs expo hosted by the Canadian Government. If you want to make Canada your home, this is a must go to event at Canada House.
October 15 & 16
Canada House, Trafalgar Square, London
The event is hosted by the Atlantic Work Partnership, an inter-provincial collaboration of New Brunswick; Novia Scotia; Prince Edward Island; and Newfoundland-and-Labrador. These provinces are also known as Atlantic Canada.
This is really Canada’s best kept secret. Atlantic Canada is, in many ways, the true Canada: small town vibes with big city opportunities. It’s a little bit country, a whole lot of maritime, and rocking new jobs market. Atlantic Canada’s doors are open for business.
Sure, it’s got an ancient fishing industry. And yes, some of us say “eh” as we swipe the pre-craft beer foam off our pre-hipster beards. But nowadays, the new workers in this area are more likely to be sipping espressos over laptops than chewing tobacco over fishing nets.
An interesting geological feature is that Atlantic Canada sits exactly halfway between the UK and California, with the eastern US seaboard just a short trip south. For this reason, a great many startups have been attracted to the region. It means they can work in key global time zones in each working day, a stone’s throw from New York at a fraction of the cost.
So, if you take a scroll through our Canadian job boards, you’ll find opportunities for digital animators, drupal developers, financial analysts: in summary, a lot of new roles combining technical know-how and creative and strategic smarts. In addition, the growing population also has a strong need for professional services, especially in medicine, health and well being.
There’s a lot to like in Atlantic Canada. And a lot of work that needs doing.
If you’re lucky enough to attend this employment expo, you’ll get to meet employers, employment agents, and also all the experts you’ll need to help you make the shift. That includes immigration officials, government endorsed immigration consultants, and a range of logistical support.
And did we mention that it’s free? It won’t cost you a thing. What else are you going to do that weekend?
