The Canadian Apparel Federation (CAF) has announced that the association is set to host its inaugural Apparel & Fashion Career Fair and Expo at metro hall, in Toronto, Canada, on September 25, 2018. The CAF is the national association for Canada’s apparel industry. The association brings together and provides services to firms from across the country.

With support from the city of Toronto, the Apparel & Fashion Career Fair and Expo will connect top employers with prospective employees. As Canada’s apparel industry evolves and grows, employers in today’s market are blending tradition with innovation by seeking new hires armed with skills in business and communication, social media, digital marketing, industrial, graphic and fashion design, engineering, ecommerce, and more. This presents an opportunity for those who are entering the industry for the first time to put their skills to the test in new and innovative ways. It is also a perfect space for budding entrepreneurs and small businesses to network with top industry leaders and innovators such as Cobmex, Pink Tartan, Jenny Bird, Wuxly Movement, Studio La Beauté, Encircled, Comrags and more, according to a press release.

There will be a series of free seminars at the event. It will be an exclusive opportunity for attendees to learn about topical issues from some of the biggest names in the industry. The career fair will be followed by a networking reception, allowing both job seekers and employers to mingle in a more intimate and relaxed setting.

“We are continuously looking to attract top talent. Having the ability to meet candidates face to face and entertain these conversations is exciting for us,” James Yurichuk of Wuxly Movement, an exhibitor and seminar panellist at the event said.

“The Apparel & Fashion Career Fair and Expo is a day that offers an opportunity for job seekers to personally connect with, and impress Ontario’s leading fashion and apparel designers, manufacturers, and retailers,” Danielle Kuczer, event director and wage subsidy programme manager at the CAF said.
