Nova Scotia Works, in partnership with the employment centres, Job Junction, Opportunity Place, TEAM Work Cooperative and YMCA Halifax, hosts job fairs with great success for job seekers and employers. We hosted a 2-day Spring Job Fair on April 17th & 18th with nearly 4,000 job seekers and over 100 employers.
