Fly-In Career Symposium

Explorer: Fall 2015

The Fly-in Career Symposium, organized by Keewatin Career Development Corporation (KCDC), flew companies to Athabasca communities to talk to students about careers. The event included hands on activities from each company. ABD and Points Athabasca were proud to sponsor and support the event.

“I am a teacher from Father Megret High School in Wollaston Lake…I am so appreciative of this career fair. It engaged our students and motivated them to think about their future. Many students left the career fair inspired with the hope of one day building a career in the North and continuing their education. Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity to inform and inspire our students!”
