On September 28th, Ottawa’s Shaw Centre came alive with excitement for the inaugural Best Places to Work Career and Training Expo—and Laurysen was in the heart of it all, showcasing our incredible career opportunities.

The event, presented by the Ottawa Business Journal in partnership with the Ottawa Board of Trade and WCG Employment Ontario, brought together the region’s top employers, post-secondary institutions, and economic development partners. For anyone looking to take their career to the next level, it was certainly an event not to be missed!

It was an incredible opportunity to connect with so many talented individuals in Ottawa.” She added, “Laurysen is always on the lookout for exceptional talent to join our team, and the Expo was the perfect platform to showcase what makes Laurysen such a special and rewarding place to work.”
