Immigrant speakers coming to Calgary

Don’t miss the Calgary Canadian Immigrant Fair

The free Canadian Immigrant Fair, in association with Public Mobile, is coming back to Calgary for the fifth year in a row, with a diverse tradeshow and an exciting lineup of speakers who will help take your journey in Canada to the new heights.

This year, the event is being held at the Genesis Centre in northeast Calgary, on October 3, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Kicking off the speakers’ series is returning speaker and RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Miroslav Reljic, who always gets his audience energized and inspired.  Next, you will learn about accessing loans to help you get certified or re-established in your career. That leads into an English pronunciation workshop and transformational workshops on succeeding in Canada, both personally and professionally.

Here is the lineup of speakers (see times and all details here):

In this dynamic and interactive workshop, drawing from his own experience as a professional leadership and career coach and change expert, Miro Reljic will help you learn how to embrace transitions and learn how to create opportunities and achieve success in Canada.
