We got chatting to Rhonda Jacobson, Community Outreach Manager, New2Canada SuperShow and Expo today on Twitter, keeping our conversation to 140 characters or less, and she sent us some information that may be of interest to those new to Canada …
From the press release:
New to Canada Resources is proud to present Canada’s largest show and exposition for newly settled Canadians. Featuring over 70 exhibitors from all three tiers of government, local community resource and support groups, and the private sector, The New to Canada SuperShow and Expo promises to be a must-attend event for all newcomers.
Unlike the many “job fair” type shows that frequent the GTA, this is the first all-encompassing newcomer expo in Eastern Canada, with specialized exhibits and seminars targeting the most important needs of new Canadians, from settlement issues and changing regulations, to recreation programs and local diversity support services.
The show takes place at The International Centre, Mississauga, on Saturday, November 8 and Sunday November 9. Admission is free for those who register online at n2Canadashow.org, or at the door.
And it’s open to anyone with an interest in newcomer issues, as well as the general public.
Some of the more than 70 featured exhibitors include: Service Ontario, York Region, The City of Mississauga, OCASI (settlement.org), major colleges and retraining organizations, job search strategy organizations, along with many smaller, hard-to-find community support groups … the grassroots organizations helping with the many and varied settlement challenges that a newcomer faces when immigrating to Canada.
There is also a free Welcome Pack for qualified show visitors upon presentation of a PR Card.
The GTA’s unique and highly diverse ethnic and multicultural foundations will surely make for an interesting and informative show.
