CF Launches National Job Fair Program to Help Fill Vacant Retail Jobs

The national Job Fair program is one of the priority initiatives that has come from research done with retailers as a way to help them fill a major gap in staffing.

We’re proud to share that this Fall, CF introduced a national Job Fair program at our shopping centres as part of the Retail Strategy work. The national Job Fair program is one of the priority initiatives that has come from research done with retailers as a way to help them fill a major gap in staffing. 

It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has hit service-producing sectors the hardest, with social industries like restaurants and retailers facing unbalanced closures, lockdowns and crushing restrictions. These industries accounted for 8 out of every 10 vacancies reported in Canada’s June census*. However, with people being more eager to return to life as they knew it by dining and shopping indoors, restaurants and retailers are still finding it extremely challenging to fill these roles.

CF’s national Job Fairs are designed to make it easy for our retailers to attract a large group of talent in a comfortable environment. Job applicants are encouraged to apply for jobs through CF Front Door, an innovative platform that helps connect job seekers and retailers with employment opportunities at CF shopping centres. 

CF Toronto Eaton Centre and CF Markville were the first to host job fairs in September, with additional CF shopping centres across Canada hosting events throughout the month of October. As always, safety remains our top priority at these events. CF has set up socially distanced tables and sanitizer stations throughout the centre, and is available to help with traffic flow and line management as required.
