Thanks for attending CANS Construction Job Fair!

On Thursday, February 8, the Construction Association of Nova Scotia (CANS) kicked off its first event of the year with CANS Construction Job Fair — and we are proud to say it was a huge success!

It was a busy and productive day for all. More than 1,060 job seekers registered for the event, with folks lining up nearly an hour early to meet with our 27 employers and event partners.

We had a steady pace of attendees comprised of students in construction programs, recent graduates, newcomers to Nova Scotia, and many new Canadians. We look forward to hearing all the success stories from our employers who made connections with so many prospective employees. Thank you to all who attended for supporting the growth of the construction industry through this event!
