The Centre Chevaliers in Falher was filled with representatives from businesses, government agencies and post-secondary institutions on Feb. 24, as part of a career fair.
“It’s to give kids information about what’s available in the region, for education and employment,” says Diane Chiasson, the economic development officer for the Smoky River Regional Economic Development office in Falher, and one of the organizers.
Approximately 400 students came from around the region, including Eaglesham. The focus of the career fair was students in Grades 4-12.
The businesses that participated included United Farmers of Alberta, Long Run Exploration and Du North Designs Ltd. The government agencies included Alberta Health Services, Agriculture Financial Services Corporation and Alberta Works.
