The Virtual Job Fair is a month-long series of virtual workshops and presentations for autistic youth and adults. Job seekers will develop pre-employment skills, meet with employers and service providers, and learn about opportunities in the Lower Mainland area.

Taking place this February, the interactive job fair is offered at no cost. All workshops and presentations will take place via Zoom.

Pre-employment workshops are open to all individuals on the spectrum. A CAN membership is not required to participate. 

These workshops are recommended for youth and adults of legal working age, 15 years and up.
