All Employers Registration Policy

* Revised September 2020
The following policies will apply to employers who wish to register for either a Career Fair (Fall) or Job Fair (Winter) co-sponsored by Conestoga College, University of Guelph, University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University:

  • Attendance at the Fairs is restricted to organizations representing the recruiting needs of the participating organization. 
  • Promotion of services and/or products for any other purpose is not permitted.
  • Partnerships for Employment reserves the right to decline participation in recruitment events. Rationale may include: start-up costs, franchise (self-employment) opportunities, illegal compensation structures, human rights or safety concerns, student complaints and overdue accounts. 
  • Registrations will not be accepted verbally but must be submitted through the Partnerships for Employment website.
  • For virtual events, organizations with the same corporate identity will be restricted to one virtual booth.
  • For in-person events, exhibitors will be restricted to a maximum of two booth spaces per Fair. A full registration fee for the second booth space is required.
  • At in-person events, organizations attending the Fair under the same corporate identity should select exhibit space beside each other at the Fair where possible. These exhibitors may choose to remove the centre panel between booths but are not required to do so.
  • Employers are required to pay one of the registration fees prior to attendance at the Fair.
  • An organization submitting a 'late' payment will be required to submit payment with registration for the next Fair attended. An organization with an outstanding invoice will not be allowed to register for a future Fair until full payment is received for both the past and current events.



Third-Party and Temp Agency Registration Policy

*Revised June 2012

The following policies will apply to third-party recruiters and temp agencies who wish to register for either a Career Fair (September) or Job Fair (February) co-sponsored by Conestoga College, Laurier, University of Guelph and University of Waterloo.

Third-party recruiters may attend the Fair under their own corporate identity only if they are recruiting for their own organization. No other client opportunities may be advertised at the Fair. However, a third-party organization may also attend the Fair representing one client (multiple not permitted). In this instance, the registration, booth and guidebook submission must represent the client name, not the recruiting agency's name.

No agency acting as an employer with temporary employment opportunities will be eligible to participate in Career Fair. At Job Fair, participation will be limited to five temp agencies, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fair registration will only be confirmed upon receipt of payment.



Magazine & On-line Job Posting Services Registration Policy

*Revised November 2011

No magazines or job posting services are eligible to participate for promotional purposes. Attendance at Career/Job Fairs as an exhibitor is restricted to organizations representing the recruiting needs of the specific participating organization. 



Professional Associations Registration Policy

Professional Associations representing career areas/designations may attend Career Fair. To attend Job Fair, these associations must have positions available within their organization.



Cancellation Fee Policy

* Revised October 2022

We are unable to "roll over" registrations to future events.

  • Registrations cancelled in writing before January 20, 2023 AND prior to the organization creating their booth on Career4Canada, will be refunded less a $200 administrative fee.
  • Cancellations received after January 20, 2023 OR after the organization has created their booth on Careers4Canada, will receive no refund.
  • Employers who fail to attend the event will receive no refund.



Severe Weather Policy

*Revised October 2019

The Career and Job Fair Steering Committee reserves the right to cancel a Fair based on severe weather conditions which result in the closure of two or more of the partner institutions' main campuses (Conestoga College, University of Guelph, University of Waterloo and/or Wilfrid Laurier University).

In the case of an event cancellation by the Steering Committee, participating organizations who have submitted a payment at the time of the cancellation will have their registration fee refunded.

Neither a refund nor a compensatory registration at an upcoming Fair will be issued if the Fair is in operation and an exhibitor is unable to attend due to severe weather in his/her geographical region.



Guidebook Submission Policy

*Revised November 2012

For in person events:

  1. Employers are entitled to one guidebook submission included in the registration fee, ensuring that the style and length are similar to the template provided with each registration package.



Booth Selection by Employer Registrants Policy

*Revised November 2011

For in-person events, organizations requesting two booths (maximum) at the time of registration should select booths which are adjacent to each other on the floor plan where possible. In the case of multiple divisions within the same organization who register independently, booths may be located in separate areas on the floor plan but it is recommended that they be adjacent where possible to create maximum exposure with attendees. In the case of multiple division registration, only two booths in total are permitted per organization.
