Virtual Career Fair
Connecting Employers and Educators with Emerging and Transitioning Practitioners
National Virtual Environmental Career Fair
Thank you to everyone who attended our Virtual Career Fair on August 25, 2021. Each year, the National Virtual Career Event brings together leading innovative organizations, HR experts, educators, and practitioners in the environmental sector.
This year we had over 1300 attendees, 23 prominent organizations and 6 live webinar presentations on topics ranging from tips to Ace Your Video Job Interview to Creating an Inclusive Environment for Indigenous Workers.
This was not just “another virtual event”. Our interactive career fair platform recreated the look and feel of a face-to-face job fair.
A Greener Economic
Recovery for Canada
Canada’s overall labour market has partially recovered from the initial COVID-19 lockdown with an unemployment rate of 8.8% at the end of 2020 – this rate is still higher than when we entered the decade at 5.6%.
However, environmental employment actually increased slightly! 35k net new jobs were added and our updated forecasts reveal that environmental employment could increase by 17% by 2025. Attending this career fair will give you more insight into job opportunities and HR trends.
ECO Canada can provide you with coast-to-coast exposure and visibility for your brand through our extensive network of environmental professionals and employers.
