The National Education Fair was one of the first events related to education and career choice in Quebec.
It is the only event in Canada to combine a comprehensive offer to answer specific needs of the next generation as well as of the working force, as a result of a shift taken by INEO 10 years ago by presenting in conjunction with the Fair, The National Job Fair and, more recently, The Study & Stay Abroad Fair.
