Inclement Weather

Cancellation of this fair is highly unlikely and has not occurred. However, if severe weather conditions cause a closure of Queen’s University Campus, this Fair will be cancelled.

In the case of event cancellation, participating organizations will be offered, in lieu of and at no additional cost, registration at one of Faculty of Education Career Services’ future career fairs. No registration fee refunds will be issued. If the Fair is already in progress at the time of campus closure, there will be no refund or deferred registration.

If possible, our staff will work with those affected to carry registration forward to a future career fair event.
