Women as Career Coaches celebrates women - their goals, pathways, and accomplishments. Young women need access to adult role models who are willing to share their career pathways and encourage the goals and dreams of youth. To meet this need, The Halton Industry Education Council, in partnership with the Ontario Women's Directorate, Partners for Change Initiative, is pleased to present the annual Women as Career Coaches event.

The Grade 8 Program conveys a positive message to all students, revealing all the options available to them and giving them a great starting point as they begin thinking about the future. The program consists of two key components: a 10-week in-school portion of the Real Game, which explores topics such as budgeting, time management, and the importance of choices, and a class trip to the HIEC Career Centre. The Career Centre visit is a two hour career awareness workshop, where students discuss their dream jobs, receive an introduction to the Career Planning Process and discover the importance of exploring options related to their interests, skills and values.

The Halton Apprenticeship Advisory Council (HAAC) was created in December 1998 in response to the skilled labour shortage in Halton Region. Under the Halton Industry Education Council, HAAC is a community effort of business, education, government and labour, meeting regularly (usually monthly) to identify, communicate and resolve problems inherent in skilled labour shortage. The Council's structure is informal to encourage networking and open communication. Each year, HAAC presents its Honour Roll awards to companies that demonstrate excellence in the promotion of the skilled trades in Halton.
