Canada's East Coast Job Fair in Ireland
Join Us at Canada’s East Coast Job Fair in Ireland - Cork and Dublin, Ireland, November 7-12, 2011From November 7-12, 2011, Atlantic employers will attend a skilled worker promotion and attraction event in Ireland, to recruit prospective workers for difficult-to-fill positions. This event which will be led by the Office of Immigration and Multiculturalism in Newfoundland and Labrador will include a three day job fair, with a welcome reception in Cork and an evening reception in Dublin with the Canadian Ambassador to Ireland. The job fair will focus on bringing together Atlantic employers with skilled workers who are looking to work and relocate to Canada’s East Coast. This event is being sponsored by the Atlantic Population Table, a cooperative venture between five governments: Canada, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland & Labrador.
There is a full suite of opportunities for employers to participate in this event, including:
- A three-day job fair exclusively for Atlantic employers and targeted to key sectors;
- Support from provincial offices of immigration to assist you in following up with prospective employees, key individuals and agencies that can guide you through the process of hiring migrant workers.
- A comprehensive, targeted advertising campaign to attract the right job-seekers.
- A welcome reception in Cork for employers and government representatives.
- An evening reception in Dublin hosted by the Canadian Ambassador to Ireland and the Canadian Embassy in Dublin.
Space for this event is limited to companies in Atlantic Canada offering positions for skilled workers in the fields of health care services, aerospace and defense, information/communications technology, hospitality, trades, and oil and gas. Other sectors may be considered if employers can demonstrate difficulties in filling key positions.
Most costs for the job fair including promotion of event, attraction of skilled workers, the shipment of materials between Cork and Dublin, transportation during job fair and related activities, and two receptions, will be covered by the Atlantic Population Table.
Participating employers are responsible for their own travel expenses including airfare, accommodation, meals, shipping from Canada to Ireland (including return shipment), and personal transportation not related to the job fair.
