The Delta Trades & Technical Career Fair was started by Mayor Lois E. Jackson in 2013 to inspire students to pursue a variety of career options in the trades and technical areas.
The annual free event, held at Sungod Recreation Centre, provides an opportunity for students, parents and the general public to explore trades and technical careers through hands-on, interactive exhibits, demonstrations, and talking directly with experts in the field.
