The Town of Orangeville invites job seekers and commuters to explore local employment opportunities at the Orangeville and Area Job Fair on Tuesday, October 22.  Hosted by the Town’s Economic Development & Culture office, the event supports local hiring efforts and showcases the variety of positions available in Dufferin County.
