Past Programs & Events

Led by HIEC and funded by the Government of Canada, FutureForce Halton represented an opportunity for local businesses and organizations to address workforce shortages that threatened the Halton economy.

School to Career programs provided Halton students with the opportunity to experience hands-on learning in a workplace environment, bridging the gap between classroom learning and workplace realities.

The Halton Apprenticeship Advisory Council is a community effort to foster growth of the skilled trades to meet the exploding demand in the Halton Region. Honour Roll recognizes six companies, located in Halton.

Career Coaches Unlimited builds on the foundation of our highly successful Men as Career Coaches & Women as Career Coaches programs, drawing together already-engaged adult community members and high school students for further one-to-one sharing and inspiration.

Careers Unlimited was a career fair held by HIEC from 2004-2007. With over 150 exhibitors and over 800 students, Careers Unlimited was an excellent resource for youth looking for information on various occupations. The event was presented by HIEC and both the HDSB and HCDSB.

The objective of the program is for Halton seniors to share their stories with local elementary school students. The students capture these moments on film and create a digital keepsake, which is presented to the seniors and community members at a special event.

On November 17th, 2009 the Halton Industry Education Council (HIEC) celebrated 20 years of partnership, innovation and mentorship at the Burlington Convention Centre with keynote speaker Richard Florida.
