Breakfast with the Mayors is an event jointly hosted by HIEC and the Mayors of the Halton region. As HIEC’s longest running event, it has been connecting new and returning partners in industry and education for almost 30 years. The event provides a forum for community partners to receive updates on education issues and HIEC programs, and presents a leading-edge keynote speaker. We invite students, parents, educators and business representatives to attend and learn more about the many successful programs and initiatives taking place in Halton today.
