The first-ever Fraser Valley Career Connections and Conference (FVCCC) takes place Thursday, April 5 at Tradex in Abbotsford.

This regional career and job fair conference will match job-seekers from across Canada and the region with opportunities in the Fraser Valley labour market.

FVCCC is a partnership among the City of Abbotsford, City of Langley, City of Chilliwack, Township of Langley, and Abbotsford Works.

Organizers say that with a booming economy, a young and diverse population and an abundance of business resources, the Fraser Valley is a place of opportunity.

“Strong labour demands across the region present an opportunity to connect job seekers with businesses that reside across the local communities,” they say.

FVCCC will put the Fraser Valley on the map for job seekers, while facilitating an opportunity for businesses to gain exposure and participate in employer-only sessions pertaining to funding, wage subsidies and human resource trends.

Employers will also be able to take advantage of on-site interviews as well as pre-arranged virtual interviews to extend their reach to skilled workers from across the country.

“Abbotsford is forecasted to be one of the country’s leaders in economic growth, and the FVCCC will assist businesses across the region in finding the skilled workers they need to flourish,” said Mayor Henry Braun.

“I welcome job seekers from across Canada to consider the Fraser Valley as the place to put their skills to work.”

The conference runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visit fraservalleycareers.com for more information or to register.
