In partnership with the Association of Black Law Enforcers (ABLE), the University of Guelph-Humber hosted a career fair for students and community members interested in working in the justice field. The career fair, which is the biggest of its kind in Ontario, brought together representatives from security services, the Canadian Armed Forces, government services and law enforcement agencies from across the province to meet and talk with potential future employees.

The ABLE Career Fair has been hosted at UofGH for 12 years now, and many of the presenters and recruiters were themselves alumni of the University’s Justice Studies program.

“This event brought together a wide range of employers together into one space, giving students a chance to inquire into all sorts of justice-related careers,” says Glen Hanna, Assistant Program Head, Justice Studies. “I saw many course instructors personally introduce their students to different recruiters, giving them a chance to meet what could be their future colleagues. It’s at events like these that careers can be started.”

The employers in attendance were also happy to have taken part.

“It was great to see such a strong turnout for this event — we saw students from areas as different as Business, Media Studies and Justice Studies who were interested in the opportunities of this field,” said one the recruiters. “I answered some great questions about training, placement opportunities, and what the career path is like.”
