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.

No! Privacy and data protection are very important to the Education & Career Fairs. No email addresses will be shared with exhibitors automatically. Exhibitors will have sign up forms where you can leave your email address if you are interested in learning more.
All high schools are asked to register a minimum of two weeks in advance. ECF Management will be scheduling staggered attendance in order to prevent overwhelming the exhibitors. All other attendees can register any time up to the virtual live event.
For an optimal experience, we suggest using a desktop or laptop and viewing in a Chrome browser. Headphones are suggested so you can listen to the presentations. During the event, if you have having technical difficulties, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
ECF virtual will have all of the same great features as the in person. This will include talks from recent grads, professionals, and loads of exciting opportunities. The schedules will be available on our website as soon as they are confirmed.
All presentations will be 10 – 15 minutes long. We would recommend utilizing headphones or a headset in order to hear the presentations in the clearest manner. Following the sessions, there will be a live Q&A where you can ask the presenters any follow up questions.
