“This is a critical event for our community as our region continues to face a significant workforce shortage. By fostering direct connections, we are not only addressing this immediate challenge but also investing in the long-term vitality of our workforce and economy. We are committed to empowering individuals with rewarding career opportunities and equipping industries with the skilled workforce they crucially need.” Carilyne Hébert; Executive Director of the SDC.

The Eastern Ontario Training Board along with the Newcomer Employment Welcome Services will continue their partnership by providing an added feature of Community Connections – A yearly event that brings together the many newcomers in our community and the local agencies to support them.

“Skills Ontario has been promoting careers in skilled trades and technologies to youth, students, parents…and anyone who might be interested in pursuing this great career pathway for 35 years across the province of Ontario!  Our partnership with the Employability Network of Cornwall & Area has always been strong, and we are very excited to be part of the 2024 Job Fair that this year will feature Skills Ontario and numerous careers in the skilled trades and technologies!” Dan Cardinal, Senior Provincial Engagement Coordinator of Skills Ontario.
