This post is really popular, but I can see some people are having a hard time finding it from the home page, so here it is re-posted below: Normally this would be prime job fair season here in Vancouver – but with the Olympics and Paralympics this year, we’ve seen a couple of the big fairs cancelled. There was a small stack in January, but for the rest of the year, not so much.
Here’s what we could find though:
