Connecting talent with opportunity: Emery Village BIA Job Fair 2024

By Sean Delaney

Spring is blooming in Toronto, and the Emery Village Business Improvement Area (BIA) is gearing up for its job fair on April 18th. The event promises a day filled with opportunity for both job seekers and businesses. With the vibrant economic landscape of Canada’s largest industrial zone as its backdrop, this event is set to showcase the diverse range of career opportunities available in Emery Village.

The 2024 job fair, building on the resounding success of the inaugural event in 2023, will feature a broad spectrum of positions ranging from Baking Technicians, General Production Workers, and Mixer Operators to roles requiring specialized skills such as Millwright-CNC, Warehouse Associates, Sales Associates, and more. The fair is ideal for those interested in Marketing and Communication Coordination, Graphic Design, Digital Assets Communication, and various supervisory and technical positions, including CNC Machinists and Welders.

A diverse array of businesses has already signed up to participate, including local favourites and industry leaders like Upper Crust, Alendel, Delta Bingo, Cameron Landscaping, Multiseal, MillerKnoll, New Era Group, Mainline MDS, and Mosaic Transit. Their involvement underscores the breadth of opportunities and the dynamic nature of the job market in Emery Village.

Last year, the Emery Village BIA was honoured with the 2023 Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas (TABIA) award in the “Member Support” category. This award is a testament to the community’s strong spirit and the BIA’s commitment to fostering economic growth and support. It sets a celebratory tone for this year’s gathering.

The job fair is not just a platform for employers to meet potential employees, it’s a community event that unites the diverse talents and businesses that make Emery Village thrive. It offers a professional yet relaxed atmosphere perfect for networking, learning, and exploring the possibilities within Toronto’s industrial heart.

For those interested in participating in this vibrant event, the deadline for Emery Village BIA Member businesses to register is April 9th. Job seekers are encouraged to mark their calendars and prepare to meet with potential employers, explore various career paths, and perhaps find their next great job opportunity.

The Emery Village BIA Job Fair is more than just a hiring event, it reflects the community’s resilience, growth, and commitment to supporting each other. Let’s come together to celebrate and explore the possibilities that lie ahead, fostering a supportive environment where both businesses and individuals can flourish. Join us at the Emery Village BIA Job Fair 2024 — where your future awaits.
