The team at DigiBC is deeply sorry to hear about the recent closure of the MPC Vancouver office. In light of how many people have been affected, DigiBC and the Animation & VFX Alliance of BC are co-organizing an industry hiring fair for all former MPC employees. We’ve had a terrific response from a number of companies in the industry, so let’s work together to keep all this great talent here in BC. It would be ideal if the folks impacted could have a soft landing. Thanks to the Centre for Digital Media and the Great Northern Way Trust for the venue sponsorship.
While we are focussed on supporting the recently released artists from MPC, we would welcome anyone interested in talking to these companies about employment opportunities. There will also be a government representative from the Immigration Programs Branch (Ministry of Jobs, Trade & Technology) who will be providing advice to those in a PNP or in the PR process.
