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.
