Fort McMurray Tourism, in partnership with a number of other community stakeholders, is bringing a Discover.Work.Live FortMcMurray event to Calgary. This will be a job fair highlighting what it's like to live and work in Fort McMurray.
The goal of this event is to attract new residents to the region - residents who will fill some of the gaps in the labour force, but who also will stay in the region to raise their families and make the Wood Buffalo region their home.
If your company has been having trouble finding the right employees, this is a great opportunity to expand your employment search. There have been three job fairs in the past 6 months in the region and the feedback from employers has been that we need to expand the search.
The Discover.Work.Live Fort McMurray event will be held at the MacEwan Conference and Event Centre on May 16th and 17th, 2017. There will be a bus provided from Fort McMurray as well as discounted accommodations. The event has a limited amount of spots so if you are interested we recommend signing up as soon as possible.
The Fort McMurray Chamber of Commerce hosts several events throughout the year. Click here for pictures of our Business and Community Awards Reception, our Duffet n' Divot Golf Tournament, our monthly Networking Luncheons and our Small Business Week Celebrations.
