Established November 17, 1989, as a not for profit organization, the Halton Industry Education Council (HIEC) is a joint venture between industry, education and community partners in the Halton Region. Our goal is simple: to enhance career education and create the best opportunities for youth.

I love being involved with HIEC as a volunteer Emcee/Speaker. Events such as the Mayor’s Breakfast, Men as Career Coaches and Women as Career Coaches are amazing for your students looking for some advice and mentorship.
