The National Job Fair & Training Expo-Toronto-September 30 and October 1, 2008

Major Sponsorship Renewal with Employment Ontario

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 9, 2008) - The National Job Fair & Training Expo is very proud to announce the Ontario government joins as major sponsor for the Fall 2008 event, scheduled for September 30 and October 1, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The Ontario government will promote the different ways job seekers, employers and students can access employment, training and apprenticeship programs. The Ontario government will exhibit in the Training & Education Pavilion at booths #623, #625, #722 and #724.

"The National Job Fair & Training Expo and Employment Ontario have a long-standing relationship and the minimum I can say is that we are very pleased to keep working together. It has always been a positive and successful relationship and we are proud to present an event that support the work of the Ontario government", says President and Show Manager Daniel Levesque.

"The renewal of the major sponsorship consolidates the role we play in the employment, education and training fields in Ontario, and more specifically, in the Greater Toronto Area", adds Levesque. "Attendees will benefit from the participation of Employment Ontario, offering the opportunity for information on the services they provide".

The National Job Fair and Training Expo was made possible by a grant from Employment Ontario. The involvement of the Ontario government, the commitment of sponsors and partners, the continued participation of exhibitors and their growing numbers are the best indicators of the role The National Job Fair & Training Expo plays in today's Ontario employment market.

For the Fall 2008 fair, organizers anticipate a record-breaking fair with over 170 exhibitors and over 10,000 highly motivated and experienced candidates from the Greater Toronto Area and its outlying region. The event is Canada's most comprehensive and largest recruitment event open to general public.

Founded in Toronto in 2002, The National Job Fair & Training Expo is a recruitment event presented to serve the employment needs of communities from the Greater Toronto Area and its outlying regions. The fair consists of four main pavilions: The Employment Pavilion, the Training & Education Pavilion, the Career Services Pavilion and the Entrepreneurship Pavilion. It is completed with five specific recruitment zones, part of the Employment Pavilion, and several interactive activities supporting the career development of all attendees, such as free New Canadians Employment Consulting Centre (new feature), free Professional Resume Assessment Centre, the Career Posting Zone, the public presentations and the entrepreneurship seminars.

The National Job Fair & Training Expo's mission is to play a major role in the Ontario recruitment marketplace (job, training, education and career) by presenting an event twice a year, in spring and fall, that stimulates employment in a dynamic and proactive environment for a vibrant audience of highly-motivated and experienced candidates. The National Job Fair & Training Expo's target exhibitors are organizations from Ontario as well as across Canada. Target visitors are candidates from the Greater Toronto Area as well as from across Ontario. As the event adapts to the changing conditions of the job market, it recognizes and explores all facets of the job-search process and career development.
