Organizers at the non-profit, Ottawa-based International Talent Acquisition Centre (In-TAC) expect to have 4,000 jobs on offer from 110+ companies and other organizations. The addition of a second job hall came with a new partner, the Kanata North Business Association as it decided to move its popular, Discover TechNATA event to a virtual platform. This has more than doubled the size of the entire event. Canada's largest tech and research park in Kanata last year drew more than 3,000 job seekers, this year the combined event is expected to draw 15-20,000 job seekers. Job seekers can register for free on our web site and must do so in advance of the job fair. Once they create an account and uploaded their resume they can begin to browse all the available jobs and all companies. COVID-19 has meant the end of traditional face-to-face job fairs. Yet it is clear that many of Canada's employers, both public and private, still need to connect with the talent that will help them grow, reopen and recover from the impact of COVID-19. This is a major employment event for Ottawa and the country as jobs will be offered from British Columbia to Nunavut and to Nova Scotia. . --, ON - .. Event Details. Location: --, ON - , Ottawa

Artist tours: Vivian Törs – Permission to Speak

October 18, 2020 2:00 pm . The exhibition continues until November 1, inclusively. Two visceral discoveries lie at the heart of Vivian Törs' exhibition, Permission to Speak. The first was a small cache of letters, written in Hungarian and found after the death of Édi, a 96-year-old family friend. The second was a stash of expired photographic paper, perfect for the lumen technique. This involves laying objects on silver gelatin paper and exposing them to sunlight to create a negative image where the light source can seem to emanate from within. The artist immediately connected the two discoveries, recognizing that they represented the elusive form she had been seeking. Marrying the letters and the lumen gave her the liberty to deepen personal history in a nonliteral way. - Exhibition booklet excerpt by Nancy Beale Biography Vivian Törs is a photo-based artist born in Montreal to Hungarian refugee parents. She learned the value and fragility of freedom from an early age. The responsibility of remembering and acknowledging the lessons of the past deeply informs her work. Vivian completed the Photographic Arts and Production diploma at the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa (SPAO), and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in Art History at Carleton University. Her work has been exhibited in Ontario, Québec and New Brunswick, and she has been awarded grants from the City of Ottawa, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts. Vivian Törs gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Ontario Arts Council. . 110 Laurier Avenue WestOttawa, ON K1P 1J1 .. Event Details. Location: 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa
