TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 16, 2009) - The National Job Fair & Training Expo is proud to announce that the Government of New Brunswick will be a major sponsor for the spring 2009 fair to be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on March 31 and April 1.

The Government of New Brunswick's Population Growth Secretariat will be leading a recruitment mission along with a delegation of companies and educational facilities to The National Job Fair & Training Expo, such as Malley Industries, Atlantic Lottery, Landsbridge University, NB Power, City of Moncton and SwiftHire Corporation. Visitors to the Toronto fair will have direct access to New Brunswick employment opportunities from a wide range of sectors such as energy, trades, manufacturing, education, construction, engineering, information technology, and more.

"With our sponsorship of this important event, we are sending the message to jobseekers across the country that New Brunswick is the place to be for individuals seeking both a great career and great quality of life," said Greg Byrne, Minister of the Population Growth Secretariat. "I am confident that patrons of The National Job Fair & Training Expo will get a first-hand glimpse of all that New Brunswick has to offer when visiting our unique recruitment zone."

"It is the second time the Government of New Brunswick has been involved in The National Job Fair & Training Expo and we are proud they have decided to come this year as a major sponsor. Our mission is to support all initiatives in Ontario as well as at the national level. This new sponsorship shows what can be accomplished by joining forces to back up the employment needs in a specific province. We are grateful to the Government of New Brunswick for their involvement and trust in our recruitment event," says President and Show Manager Daniel Levesque.

New Brunswick's employers will be featured in the New Brunswick Recruitment Zone, part of the Employment Pavilion, and will be offering several hundred career opportunities in one of Canada's most vibrant economies. Job seekers will be encouraged to be themselves, belong and be better in New Brunswick by interviewing with employers onsite and visiting

Attendees of The National Job Fair & Training Expo including job seekers, individuals willing to relocate and ready for a career change, as well as people looking for training and continuing education programs should not miss the opportunity to get to know more about this Eastern Canada province. There will also be information on how it is to run a small business in New Brunswick.


Growth in New Brunswick is real and it's happening now. The sod's been turned $1.7-billion potash mine; the Point Lepreau nuclear generating station is undergoing refurbishment; the environmental impact assessment process is moving ahead on Irving Oil's proposed $7-billion refinery, and there are more projects on the horizon. The potential impact of these projects is astonishing: more than 30,000 new jobs in a variety of sectors, billions of dollars in provincial tax revenues and up to $44 billion in new investments in New Brunswick.

Perhaps the best part about being in New Brunswick is that you can have more than just a great career. You can also have a great way of life. So why not make a career move to a place that moves you?

New Brunswick is a place where people can be successful because a dollar buys more and houses cost less. It is a place where people can be inspired by the province's natural beauty and unique culture. Most of all it is a place where people can be adventurous by just walking out the door: most of the province's urban centers are just minutes away from fishing, whale watching, hiking, swimming in the ocean or cycling along quiet trails.


For the spring 2009 fair, organizers are on target to present an event with over 170 exhibitors from across Ontario and Canada and expect over 10,000 highly motivated and experienced candidates in attendance from the Greater Toronto Area and its outlying region. The participation record is 172 exhibitors at the fall 2008 fair from which exhibitors came in from seven provinces.

The National Job Fair & Training Expo is the only recruitment event open to general public (adult candidates) that has always been presented with over 150 exhibitors in the last few years in Canada. Other major sponsors are the Toronto SUN, 24 Hours and Employment Ontario.

The fair consists of four main pavilions. The Employment Pavilion is comprised of six featured zones: The Ontario, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Prince Edward Island, Relocation & Mining and Retail recruitment zones. The three other pavilions are specific to Training & Education, Career Services and Entrepreneurship. The fair is completed with several interactive activities supporting the career development of all attendees, such as free New Canadians Employment Consulting Centre, free Professional Resume Assessment Centre, the Career Posting Zone, 18 public presentations and 12 entrepreneurship seminars.
