Cornwall Ontario – Interested in a career in trades and technology? If so, then plan to attend the Skills Ontario – Discovery Day on May 27.

Discovery Day - Skills Ontario

The Discovery Day event brings together employers, students, job seekers and other community partners in virtual place to learn about the incredible career opportunities that exist in skilled trades and technologies in Cornwall and SD&G.

“The day is meant to be equal parts learning and fun,” says Dan Cardinal, Community Outreach and Engagement Coordinator with Skills Ontario. “This is different than a career fair.  If you have ever had questions about trades and technology, then you need to join us for Discovery Day!”

The event takes place on Thursday May 27th and runs from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm. Participants will be able to:

  • Explore exhibitor booths to learn about employment and educational pathways to a career in skilled trades and technologies.
  • Connect and ask questions to experts 1-1 (trades people, potential employers, educational institutions, government and more).
  • Attend two dedicated sessions on employment opportunities and support programs (separate sessions in English and French)

Participants will have access to an online Swag bag via email with downloadable information and resources.
