For more than 25 years, the HIEC Career Centre has provided programs and services that support students as they prepare to transition into high school, allowing them to imagine a post-secondary pathway that will set them up for future success.

Our interactive and student-driven Career Awareness Program provides students with access to current information on a wide range of career options for a variety of learners. The Career Awareness Program complements and extends career/life planning beyond the classroom and is designed to support students as they prepare to make the transition to secondary school.
