Who We Are
The Education & Career Fair (ECF) is B.C.’s Largest Career Development Fair. This includes secondary students planning for higher education and exploring career options; young adults looking to transfer their work experience & skills to a different industry; and new immigrants seeking employment and further training to settle in Canada.
Since 1996, ECF has worked hard in the aim of facilitating connections that drive career decisions and inspire growth for individuals and organizations in an evolving economy and job market. Over the years, we have helped students and young adults plan their education and career journey by connecting them with valuable tools and contacts. ECF has attracted over 12,000 attendees across all fairs in British Columbia, and last year, we have expanded our scope to launch a series of fairs is Ontario as well. ECF is today proud to be recognized by Business in Vancouver as “Top Trade Shows in the Lower Mainland”.
ECF mission is to create community connections by inspiring students and employment seekers in skill development and education pathways.
ECF vision is to facilitate connections that drive career decisions and economic opportunities for individuals and organizations across the globe.
- Promoting education for all.
- Supporting personal & professional success.
