Cornwall & The Counties Community Futures Development Corporation

Entrepreneur EXPO

Entrepreneur EXPO and Career Fair is a platform where entrepreneurs will gather to showcase their businesses for local high school students. This will give students the opportunity to further explore entrepreneurship as a future career option.

April 17th, 2015

On last April 17th, the CFDC Youth Program partnered with the Akwesasne Area Management Board to deliver the Career Fair that was held on Friday April 17, 2015 on Cornwall Island. The goal was to allow students from Cornwall, SDG and Akwesasne the opportunity to gather informational handouts and speak one on one with representatives from post-secondary institutions, local trades, local entrepreneurs, law enforcement agencies and representatives from other career options. Approximately 1000 students attended the event.

“The goal is to allow students from Cornwall and Akwesasne the opportunity to gather handouts and speak with representatives from post-secondary education institutions, local entrepreneurs, local law enforcement agencies, and other representatives from other career options. Approximately 1000 students attended the Career Fair and it was a success”.
