On behalf of the Cree Regional Authority - Cree Human Resources Development (CRA-CHRD), I regret to inform you that the 3rd Regional Career Fair scheduled to take place July 22 & 23, 2009 at the Mawabou Gardens Arena in Wemindji, QC has been postponed until further notice due to the precautionary measures being taken to the prevent the spread of the influenza H1N1 virus in Eeyou Istchee.

We anticipate that for this reason the attendance of the event will be greatly influenced resulting in a low turn-out, therefore hindering our objective, which is to increase career awareness and providing greater insight of the general labour market for Eeyouch of Eeyou Istchee.

The public will be informed about the dates of the event when we have rescheduled.
