Airport-wide job fair a success!

On September 27, 2022, we held a multi-employer Toronto Pearson job fair. We hosted almost 400 job seekers and had 20 employers offering over 250 roles. Six employment services agencies from the non-profit sector attended to support both their job seekers and our employers. During the event, job seekers were able to meet with employers to learn about available positions and drop off their resumes with employers they were interested in working with.

The direct impact of the job fair is already being seen across the airport. So far, our employer partners anticipate over 80 direct hires from the job fair and multiple companies have already had these employees start orientation! We have provided great feedback from both employers and job seekers that is helping inform decisions as we plan future events.

Pearson Works and the airport-wide job fair was funded by the Ontario Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development (MLITSD) through the ministry’s Skills Development Fund. Pearson Works was developed to support the recovery, reskilling and upskilling of the Toronto Pearson workforce, one of the country’s most dynamic, multi-employer workplaces.
