"More than 30 exhibitors will be at each event," said Charlie Mignault, director of business development, corporate learning and performance improvement for St. Lawrence College.
"The fairs will allow attendees to talk to working professionals, educators, and really get a taste for a particular career path that interests them. This is an exciting project, and we're glad to be able to help connect people to meaningful employment and further education."
The Trade Roots program is funded in part by the Government of Canada's Youth Employment Strategy and hosted by St. Lawrence College.
