“These employers have a wide variety of positions available, so we encourage everyone—even those without work experience—to come down and embrace this opportunity,” says Tatiana Tudoran, vpi director of public partnerships.

Other organizations participating in the event include SunLife Financial, Arise 3rd Party Call Centre, J and F Home Child Care, ING Direct, Canadian Armed Forces, MCIS Language Interpreters, VHA Home Health Care, Wegz Stadium Bar (Woodbine Entertainment) and Mona Home and Office Cleaning.
