Dream Dufferin Career Pathways

Help local youth find their Dream Career


Local businesses are struggling to find the qualified employees they need.  In fact, last year in our Annual Business Survey, 41% of Dufferin businesses indicated that they were unable to fill all of their positions with candidates that met their needs and requirements. One of the only ways to change this is to show local youth some of the exciting in-demand industries we have locally,  helping them get excited and inspired to find their dream career in Dufferin.

Local nonprofits and charities are invited to participate to highlight their sector and promote any volunteer or co-op opportunities they may have now or in the future. Experiential learning and volunteering are some of the most powerful pathways for youth to get inspired and involved.

This event is co-hosted by the Career Education Council and the Dufferin Board of Trade, with support from the Upper Grand District School Board and many local organizations and businesses.
