Pearson Airport in Mississauga job fair Feb 2024

Job seekers by the hundreds, or more, are expected to attend a huge career fair being hosted next week by Pearson Airport in Mississauga.

The Toronto Pearson Job Fair takes place Feb. 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and organizers say they’re looking to fill numerous positions in a variety of areas throughout Canada’s biggest and busiest airport.

“Your career can take flight at Pearson. From baggage handlers to security and from customer service to food and beverage, Pearson has opportunities for meaningful career growth,” airport officials said in a post to social media on Monday. “Start your path at our airport-wide job fair on Feb. 22.”

For those qualified, more senior professional opportunities may also be available at the job fair, which takes place at the Toronto Congress Centre (650 Dixon Rd. in Etobicoke).

Airport officials said earlier there’s something for every job seeker at Pearson, whether you’re looking to get up close to some of the largest aircraft in the world or wanting to help customers/travellers have the best possible experience at the airport as they set out on or return from their journey.

Pearson Airport held two major job fairs last year as air travel ramped up following the elimination of COVID-19 restrictions and shutdowns that had been in place on and off from 2020 to 2022.

In January 2023, the airport held a career and job fair featuring 32 employers and last October hosted an event featuring 25 employers.

“With Canada’s aviation industry still gearing up from its pandemic shutdown,” Pearson is leading a new recruitment drive airport officials said at the time.
