Destination Canada Job Fair

CDETNO will attend for the 13th time Destination Canada Job Fair, in Paris and Brussels, from November 15th to 19th.

Two CDETNO’s employees will promote employment opportunities and the lifestyle in the Northwest Territories to hundreds of European jobs seekers. The forum will also allow candidates to obtain all relevant information on economic immigration, life in Canada and immigration support programs.

We invite interested employers to advertise their job offers during Destination Canada, to contact Aleksandar Kovacevic, Immigration, Recruitment and Career Officer.

Seeking your donations of outdoor work and office wear

 

 

Dress to Impress is seeking mild & cold weather outdoor work wear and office wear in all sizes, styles and for all genders. Clothing is accessed by local job seekers for interviews and for the first weeks on the job. With the support of the community-at-large and via the GNWT Anti-poverty fund, Dress to Impress supported 71 individuals working for 21 employers in 2018-2019.

Dress to Impress provides jobseekers with professional clothing to wear to upcoming job interviews and the first weeks on the job. Its single aim is to reduce the initial costs to those who are beginning employment.
