The University of Prince Edward Island and Holland College have teamed up again this year to host Labour Market Expo 2005, a career fair that gives youth an opportunity to get the latest information on career trends, employment opportunities, and educational choices. The Expo will take place at the Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre at UPEI on March 16-17, from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on both days.

Labour Market Expo 2005 is funded by the Canada/Prince Edward Island Labour Market Development Agreement. In partnership with UPEI and Holland College, this event is being hosted to help students and graduates who are looking for employment, as well as career, entrepreneurial, and labour market information. Youth have the opportunity to meet with employers to find out career trends and future job possibilities. Students will have an opportunity to network with exhibitors in their fields of interest and find out about educational options that are available to them.

The Expo provides employers with a unique approach to recruit full-time, part-time and summer employees. It provides access to students and youth with various educational backgrounds. The exhibitors can also network with colleagues and exchange ideas.

Labour Market Expo is free of charge to exhibitors and to anyone who attends. Free transportation will be provided on both March 16 and 17. A bus will be departing Holland College, Summerside at 12:00 pm to the Prince Edward Hotel and returning at 3:30 pm. A van will depart from the Souris Holland College Centre at 12:00 pm to the Prince Edward Hotel and return at 3:00pm, and a shuttle bus will run between the Atlantic Hospitality Institute and Holland College Charlottetown Centre to the UPEI Sports Centre from 1:00pm until 4:30pm. In addition, free parking is available in the MacLauchlan Arena parking lot at UPEI.
